Summer Academy 2021

Grades K-5 Program and Classes


Hello Everyone!

This year's program will feature two types of courses -remediation and enrichment. Remediation courses are designed to promote skills development in literacy and math. Enrichment courses are designed to promote inquiry and creativity. There's a lot of staff ready to help out and we're going to host this year's program at a larger venue. I hope you find success in this year's summer academy.
