Power Scholars Academy is a joint effort between the Y and BELL (Building Educated Leaders for Life) to combat summer learning loss and has served over 400 K-8 students in central Kentucky. Fayette County Public Schools identified students that would benefit form attending the program. 

Power Scholars Academy is a six-week, full-day summer learning experience that combines small group, rigorous academic instruction with fun, hands-on enrichment activities, field trips, and service projects. It is designed to help students gain new academic skills, strengthen their literacy and math skills, and stay on track so they can enter school in the fall ready to succeed. Instruction is led by certified teachers and supported by teaching assistants.

The summer learning program is designed to address summer learning loss for low-income children and thereby enhance overall youth development, academic performance, and graduation rates.
