    Greetings! Our region continues to be impacted by COVID-19 in our communities and schools.  We recognize our responsibility to focus on both student academic needs, as well as student health and safety needs.  This summer, we will be offering two options for students entering sixth through eighth grade to continue learning: in person classes and virtual classes.

    We will offer our traditional in-person Summer Academy with all of the safety protocols in place. Our summer programming will allow students to engage in fun learning activities that encourage creativity, enrichment, and academic growth while ensuring our mitigation strategies and strong safety measures remain in place even during the summer months. 

    • Registration will open on March 10 at 8:00 a.m.
    • We are offering in-person learning options at Webster Groves High School for students entering grades 6 through 8.

    We are excited about the line-up for Summer 2021.  While we do have limitations this year, we are confident our offerings will allow our students to participate in high-quality summer learning!
