In 2017, Breck Giltner, a sophomore at the University of Dallas, and Aimee Giltner, a senior at the Atonement Academy, started Areté Summer Academy in San Antonio, Texas and held it at Santo Nino Parish Hall. They wanted to create a free program for children in elementary school to empower them to maximize productivity in the summer within a positive and fun environment. 17 kids participated in 2017, 35 kids particpated in 2018, and in summer 2019, we hope to expand that number to 60.
