Sumner Academy Math Camp

July 24 - 28, 2017

Sumner Academy is offering a summer math camp to new students entering Sumner in the fall of 2017.  The purpose of the workshop is to review the student’s present math background and to introduce math concepts necessary for success at Sumner.  The camp is optional for students, but it is highly recommended!  There is no charge for the camp.  It is provided free as a service to our new students.  Students are responsible for their own transportation – the district does not provide transportation.
