Lake Wales, Florida – On May 9, 2018, Victory Ridge Academy was awarded funding from the Walmart Foundation. Funding received from Walmart will go towards Victory Ridge Academy’s Summer Camp Program.
The purpose of Victory Ridge’s Summer Camp is to provide students with educational, therapeutic, and recreational activities throughout the month of June. Over the summer students lose important information obtained over the course of the school year. This information is difficult for all students to regain once the new school year has begun, but is especially difficult for our students with special needs. Through Victory Ridge Academy’s proposed Summer Camp program, daily rigorous educational and therapeutic activities will further enhance these children’s preparedness to resume their studies for the 2018-2019 school year.
Both staff and students Victory Ridge Academy would like to thank the Walmart Foundation for their generous donation and continued support over the years.
Victory Ridge Academy is a Title 1, 501 (c)(3) non-profit public charter school that exclusively serves children with special needs. Victory Ridge Academy is based on the belief of the administration, staff and Board of Trustees that early intervention is crucial to helping children and young adults with special needs to cultivate healthy lifestyles and grow into well-adjusted persons. It is the school’s belief that students need a safe, positive and nurturing learning environment to develop communication skills, social skills, academic and technical skills in order to build their self-confidence and become productive members of society.
