Register For the 2021 Summer Experience!

  • Registration is now open for the Columbus City Schools 2021 Summer Experience program.

    The Summer Experience program will provide enriching experiences for all students in PreK through 12th grade. It is an opportunity for students to accelerate or recover credits. The need for a rich summer experience is critical now more than ever. The District’s focus this summer will be on engagement and empowerment for students and educators. Programs run for six weeks beginning on June 14.

    CCS is collaborating with a number of community partners to enhance the 2021 Summer Experience program including COSI, the Franklin Park Conservatory, The Ohio State University, and Columbus Department of Recreation and Parks. 

    The CCS Summer Experience will focus on fundamental knowledge and skills that include well-rounded content, leadership, reasoning, and social-emotional learning. With a smaller teacher-to-student ratio and following all health and safety protocols, the District’s goal is to provide in-person learning at five high schools, 10 middle schools, and 13 elementary schools.

    The Summer Experience program will serve as the CCS Extended Learning Plan that is submitted to the Ohio Department of Education.
