Where is SA being offered?
Please visit our Locations page for current site locations. If your school district is not displayed, we are not yet serving your area. We are always exploring new partnerships, so please check back often to see if your school district will be hosting the Summer Advantage program.
When will I hear if my child is accepted?
Following the submission of an application for your scholar, you will receive an invitation to a required parent meeting to learn more about our program and the program expectations. Your participation in this Parent Meeting is a required step in our enrollment process. Once all of our parent meetings have concluded, families will be notified of their scholar's enrollment status.
Can anyone attend?
Summer Advantage USA hosts children at their local schools every summer. Children from participating schools in eligible grade levels can attend. However, the program has a limited number of spaces, and some children may be placed on a wait list. Ask your school principal for more details.
What will my scholar do during the day?
Children begin their day with a healthy breakfast and then receive instructions in reading, writing, and math. After a nutritious lunch, scholars participate in enrichment activities such as art, engineering, and sports. On Fridays, scholars lead community service projects, go on field trips, and hear from inspiring guest speakers.
