Middle School Summer Experience

  • Summer Experience

    Middle school years prepare students for high school; these years are key for students’ social and emotional development, as well as discovering their hobbies and interests. 

    This year's Summer Experience will immerse students in grades 5-8 in collaborative, enriching experiences over four weeks. Students will use design-thinking strategies to solve real-world problems in the areas of STEM, Entrepreneurship, Performing Arts, Service-Learning, Urban Agriculture, and Health and Fitness! Students will expand their minds and gain experience as researchers, designers, entrepreneurs, and communicators. 

    All middle school students enrolled in Summer Experience will have daily English & Language Arts and Math blocks to work on critical academic skills that will help prepare them as they transition to the next grade level.
