Summer Learning Programs

  •  Summer is filled with possibilities!

    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 the information they learned during the school year. We offer credit recovery classes toward high school graduation, both academic and fun, as well as a variety of camps and other activities.

    Our partners offer even more great opportunities. We know you will find something to engage you in learning!
