For Alabama's students, the months away from school can result in a large loss of knowledge in reading, math, science and other core subject matter. The Alabama Summer Learning Challenge raises awareness of the summer loss epidemic, shares research on the importance of personalized activities and provides access to a variety of free resources to targeted summer learning. 

Thanks to our partners, Lexile and MetaMetrics and Fuel Education, we can offer these FREE, exciting opportunities to students statewide all summer long!

The Lexile-based "Find a Book, Alabama" tool ( offers students over 260,000 books from which to choose. This book-search tool enables individuals to build custom reading lists based on their Lexile range and/or personal interests, and checks the availability of books at the local library. The search tool includes a growing collection of English literary and informational books.

 Children, parents, and educators can also pledge to read using the "Find a Book, Alabama" tool starting May 1st. We encourage all students to pledge to read.

The Alabama Summer Learning Challenge also includes a FREE email-based math skills program for children who have completed 1st through 8th grades. Parents and other summer care-givers can begin registering for the program today.  Starting Monday, June 21st, parents will begin receiving daily emails with fun activities and resources to help their children retain math skills acquired during the previous school year.  After the program ends, parents can print an award certificate to celebrate their child's summer accomplishment!
