Summer Learning Programs Information for Non-SPPS Students

  • S-Term

    Saint Paul Public Schools and the City of Saint Paul are proud to offer a variety of programs during summer.

    This is an important time when students can lose information they learned during the school year. We offer a variety of school-based programs as well as camps and other activities. Credit recovery classes toward high school graduation are also available. We know you will find something to engage your student(s) in learning! 

    Summer Learning Programs fill quickly. Register by the priority registration deadline of April 17th, 2020 for the best opportunity to get into your first-choice. If more registrations than available seats are received, a lottery will determine enrollment.
