Summa Marketplace

One of the best things about Summa Academy is that they do project-based learning. Part of every school term involves a big project that all the kids work on teams to accomplish. The last one of this year was the Summa Marketplace, where teams of kids started pretend businesses.

Will’s group ran a pet-sitting business. Several families brought their dogs and paid “Summa Bucks” to have them boarded and played with for an hour or two. Lucy’s group ran a spa, with nail painting, massage, and foot rubs. There were also teaching businesses (I got a basketball lesson!), a video-game arcade, and more.

The kids and parents all loved it so much, we won’t be surprised if this becomes a permanent part of the program there. Great fun.
