Programming that works

The results are in.

Cadence's 2021 summer session finishes strong—with glowing reviews from students and parents alike.

80% of over 650 students who participated in NSSI’s Session 1 survey strongly agreed that teacher feedback improved their work.

85% of parents this summer said they were likely or extremely likely to recommend a summer school that uses Cadence's programming—with more than two-thirds selecting the highest possible response.

86% of nearly 2,000 students who participated in NSSI’s Session 1 survey agreed or strongly agreed that the program's novels made them want to read every day.

Build stronger teachers

Welcome to an entirely new approach to improving instruction.

Together with their same-grade peers nationally, teachers work in sustained partnership with award-winning mentors. Watch their mentor’s moves. Make them their own. See their students soar.

“It was not like a normal summer school at all.”

Harvard and University of Virginia scholars found that students in NSSI last summer improved their academic skills and gained confidence.

I honestly felt like all of my kids, they improved. Pretty much across the board they all said, I read differently now. And I pay attention to what I read. And I'm going to be thinking about what I read and what it means for my life.
