Students who attend Summer Academy this year will have so much fun that they might not even realize they are learning! This summer program is packed with music, art, robotics, field trips and more. Child care is offered to provide a full day of educational activities in a safe environment with caring, trained instructors.
Registration is open at schools across MPS. All school-age children of all abilities who are Milwaukee residents are welcome at any of our schools. Current MPS students may attend at any school of their choice. Summer Academy is free! Fees may apply for child care.
Summer Academy begins June 26. Attendance is especially important for students who need to catch up to stay at grade level. Participation will strengthen skills for all students during the summer. Taking part in summer classes also helps retain skills so students start strong in the fall.
Local partners are ready to deliver art and music to eager students. The Milwaukee Repertory Theater will teach theater skills in eight schools through a Teaching Artist. The Wisconsin Conservatory of Music will offer hands-on music exploration classes at seven schools and a drumming program at two sites. Arts @ Large is planning an arts-intensive program in four schools for students in K5 through grade 8 and two afternoon arts enrichment camps at Lancaster and Martin Luther King, Jr.
Field trips to local museums and nature centers will allow students to explore their community. Specialty camps are also available for students to dig into learning.
To learn more, talk to the parent coordinator in any MPS school or find out more on the Summer Academy page of the MPS website.
