Did you know that students currently in grades kindergarten through eight can sign up NOW to attend the Giant Summer Academy?

The schedule: 

This free four-week program will run 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, starting June 5 and ending June 29. Free breakfast (at 7:30 a.m.) and lunch will be provided to all students enrolled in Giant Summer Academy. 

Morning sessions will be tailored to each student's academic needs. (These will not necessarily be grade-level groups. Rather, each student will be guided and challenged to grow from whatever their starting point is, and will have the chance to interact with others who are at a similar level.) 

Afternoon enrichment sessions each week will center on a theme:
  • June 5-8: Sports and Games
  • June 12-15: Performing and Fine Arts
  • June 19-22: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)
  • June 26-29: Entrepreneurship
Field trips will be taken on Thursdays.

Location 

All academic and enrichment sessions for all students will be at Marion High School, 750 W. 26th St. Breakfast and lunch will be available free for all students at the MHS cafeteria.

Transportation

Morning pickup and afternoon dropoff will be provided to all Giant Summer Academy students. (No transportation to or from home will be available midday.)
