Summer Heroes Academy:

We provide an energetic 6 week summer program, Our Heroes Academy, are located in both the Dubuque and Dyersville school districts. The 6 week program allows us to make a huge impact on the academic and social growth of the lives of our students. St Mark’s Heroes Academy gives children the opportunity to increase their reading and math scores, but to also experience learning in a hands on, enriching experience, including amazing field trips throughout the tri-states.
St. Mark also engages the student’s families in these learning processes to maximize the opportunities for academic and social-emotional growth at home, including breathing techniques and yoga, to help in teaching better self regulation in school and at home.
