Summer Learning Opportunities 

Chicago Public Schools offers a wide array of fun, productive activities for students during summer break. Students who partake in educational summer programs benefit on many levels from the numerous possible activities. Summer programs not only help to prepare students for the upcoming school year, the skills they build during the summer can also aid them significantly over the course of their academic careers. Most importantly, kids will make friends and have a great time!
