Pre-K3 through 8th Grade
The goal of the summer program is to provide academic and social enrichment to help students meet the challenges they will face in the upcoming school year. New students will become familiar with the curriculum and culture of StJPII and make new friends. Returning students will build upon previous knowledge in reading and math. Students will be given the opportunity to use hands-on manipulatives and technology throughout the learning process.
