Purchase Summer Starts in September: A Comprehensive Guide Planning Guide for Summer Programs









"For some children, summertime means camp, visits to museums, parks, and libraries, and access to a variety of fun and enriching activities. For many low-income children, however, the reality of summer is far from this ideal."


Building on Strength: 
Services that Drive Quality at Scale

The National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) is the leading national expert on summer learning program quality and community system building. We offer a variety of services to include trainings and assessments for school districts, community-based organizations, libraries, local and state intermediaries and funders.

In 2013, the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality (Weikart Center) and NSLA began a collaboration to improve the quality of summer learning programs. The Summer Learning Program Quality Intervention (SLPQI) is a continuous improvement intervention for summer learning programs that includes four core components:

  1. A standard and measures for quality of management and instructional practices;
  2. Training and technical assistance supports;
  3. Performance data products;
  4. And a continuous improvement cycle that fits the prior three elements to local circumstances and resources.

The SLPQI was designed to advance the science and practice of continuous improvement by focusing on qualities of learner experience that optimize skill building in specific domains, active-participatory and academic.

To learn more about the SLPQI or any of our services, contact Monica Logan, Vice President of Program and Systems Quality at or
