Summer RISE Academy

We offer summer enrichment and fun through fieldtrips, activities, and learning.

Participation in the RISE Summer Academy keeps students stimulated throughout the summer months. Enrichment programs and outdoor activities keeps them mentally stimulated and physically active.

Our RISE Summer Academy is a free one-month summer enrichment program.

The RISE Summer Academy is an opportunity for families and scholars to get prepared for the new school year, pilot our SEL program, access our SA Ballet School partnership, receive literacy and math instruction, participate in two project-based learning projects and explore the city with our Thursday “Summer in the City” field trips.
