Summer Academy

We are delighted to unveil plans for Center City PCS’ Summer Academy. Summer Academy is a Center City program designed to provide additional instruction to our students (rising 1-8) in small settings that will increase achievement and better prepare them for the next grade level. This year’s Summer Academy will be held at two campuses: Capitol Hill (1503 East Capitol Street, SE) and Shaw (711 N Street, NW) from June 25th-July 20th (closed on July 4th). Students are encouraged to attend the campus that is closest to their home campus.

The application window will be open from:  April 9, 2018 until May 4, 2018. We are offering one program this summer.

Instructions for Payment and Registration:

Instructions for the payment of the $50 non-refundable fee per child will be outlined in the application. Only debit/credit card payments will be processed and you will receive confirmation of enrollment immediately. This year, submission of the $50 fee will confirm enrollment until 6:00 pm. Early pickup is not encouraged as doing so will prevent your child(ren) from engaging in scheduled activities. If early pickup is necessary, we suggest doing so after 3:00 pm. Please note that picking up your student early will not change the cost of the program.
