Middle School Summer Experience

  • Summer Experience

    Our middle school years don’t just prepare students for high school. These years are also key for students’ social and emotional growth, as well as diving deeper into their hobbies and interests. 

    This year's Summer Experience will immerse students in grades 6-8 in a collaborative, enriching experience over six weeks at school and partner sites across the city. Campers will use design-thinking strategies to solve real-world problems in the areas of STEM, fine arts, world language, environmental studies, and more! Students will expand their minds and gain experience as researchers, designers, entrepreneurs, and communicators.

    The Columbus City Schools curriculum team and teachers have partnered with the Columbus Zoo, Buckeye Ranch, the PAST Foundation, and other community organizations to introduce middle school students to hands-on enrichment activities that will allow them to grow as leaders inside and outside of the classroom this summer. These innovative programs will deliver rigorous and relevant educational experiences to students that are guaranteed to challenge them but keep them having fun at the same time. 

    Here is a list of schools where unique, innovative programming that is being offered to middle school students as part of the 2022 Summer Experience: 

    Family & Consumer Sciences: Wedgewood Middle School
