Summer School logo

Summer Enrichment classes are open to children who reside in the Madison Metropolitan School District and have completed grades K-4 in the current school year. The curriculum is designed to provide expanded learning opportunities and experiences for interested students who are self-motivated and committed to participation. Students are expected to attend all 28 days of the Summer School program and may be un-enrolled from Summer School if they have 5 excused or unexcused absences. If you are planning a vacation, or if there are other circumstances that will cause your student to miss more than the days allowed by this policy, we recommend that you not enroll your child.

Each elementary school site will offer the same six classes. Depending on student enrollment, more classes may be added at a later time. All enrichment classes will last for three weeks, so for every period of enrichment a child has on their schedule, they will be able to take two different classes.  Students who enroll in our enrichment program will take six of our enrichment classes during Summer School.
