Virtual Summer Academy

Registration open for students to sign up

for Virtual Summer Reading Challenge - Sign up by June 1st


Beaufort County School District’s Virtual Summer Reading Challenge lets students log their summer reading online. Students who meet reading goals for their grade levels will earn certificates of celebration from the school district. 

This will be the district’s ninth year offering an eight-week virtual program for students. Students can log any reading they complete between June 11 and August 3. 

While students are encouraged to read from lists provided by their schools and to select materials at their grade levels, they ultimately can read what they want, when they want. The Beaufort County Library and many schools have their own summer reading programs, and those books also can be logged with the district’s Virtual Summer Reading Challenge. 

Throughout the eight-week program, Virtual Reading Challenge facilitators Estee Williams and Eve Heaton will monitor student reading submissions, send reminders to log reading and also provide a steady stream of literacy-related information and activities.
