Hornet Academy offers academic remediation programs in a camp-like atmosphere.

Educators and school administrators in the Albany School District in Livingston Parish will host the Hornet Academy from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. each weekday from July 11-22, offering academic remediation programs in a camplike atmosphere.

Hornet Academy is open to all students in the Albany area who will be entering first through 12th grades in the upcoming school year.

Programs for grades first through sixth will be held at Albany Upper Elementary, while grades seventh through 12th will be held at Albany High School.

“The Hornet Academy is a communitywide summer remediation program, serving all students in Albany through a fun two-week format. The academy will be run much like a summer camp,” School Board member Devin Gregoire said.

Gregoire said bus transportation will be offered to all participants, and breakfast and lunch will be provided. Parents are allowed to transport their child and provide lunch if preferred.
