Summer Enrichment Program (SEP)
Our Summer Enrichment Program is fundamentally based on intentional learning. Our Scholars embark on a multicultural journey focusing on a different region of the world each week. Creative, S.T.E.A.M.-based enrichment activities are designed to complement current skills and to cultivate new ones. Scholars develop new friendships; advance academic and literary achievement; release some energy outdoors; create service learning projects; and incorporate leadership skills through our diverse, adventure-filled curriculum. In the past, Scholars have created cultural masks, headdresses, and drums; cooked a variety of ethnic foods; participated in traditional dances and martial arts; recreated culture-specific games; and learned new languages, including sign language. Exciting field studies have included the Community FabLab, UI Pollinatarium, Krannert Center, the Holocaust Museum, Navy Pier, American Obstacle for zip lining, and much more!
