Summer Academy

Important Updates Regarding Summer Academy 


Dear Center City families, 

It is always the goal of Center City to strive to provide quality summer programming opportunities for our students. In the past, this has meant hosting Summer Academy (in it’s varying designs) at a number of our campuses facilitated by our very own teachers. 

Unfortunately, due to a myriad of reasons including chronic low enrollment and attendance, we have decided to suspend our Summer Academy.

If your family is eligible to participate in the Extended School Year Program (ESY), the Associate Director of Special Education, Miakoda Atkins-Mose will be in touch with you. There are no action items on your part at this time. 

We appreciate the dedication to the program that many of you have displayed year after year and hope the advance notice will give you time to research other summer programs. 

Several links to alternative summer opportunities are included below:

Queridas familias de Familias de centro ciudad,

El objetivo de Center City siempre es esforzarse por brindar oportunidades de programación de verano de calidad para nuestros estudiantes. En el pasado, esto ha significado ser anfitrión de la Academia de Verano (en sus diferentes diseños) en varios de nuestros campus facilitados por nuestros propios maestros.

Desafortunadamente, debido a mi temor a razones como la baja inscripción y asistencia crónica, hemos decidido suspender nuestra Academia de Verano.

Si su familia es elegible para participar en el Programa de Año Escolar Prolongado (ESY), el Director Asociado de Educación Especial, Miakoda Atkins-Mose se pondrá en contacto con usted. No hay elementos de acción de su parte en este momento.

Apreciamos la dedicación y participación en el programa que muchos de ustedes han mostrado año tras año y esperamos que la notificación anticipada le dé tiempo para investigar otros programas de verano.

He incluido un enlace a varias oportunidades a continuación:
