The summer program for 2018 is at five School District of Philadelphia Schools and runs Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9 AM to 3 PM. The program is open to all students entering 5th through 8th grade in the fall. Students from schools currently participating in the 21st Century STEAM After School programs as well as any students from surrounding neighborhood schools are eligible to attend even if they don’t go to one of the schools listed below:

The STEAM Enrichment Summer Program provides FREE learning experiences that will help support grade level academic curriculum in math, science, and literacy through engaging arts experiences. The STEAM Enrichment Summer Program curriculum is designed for students entering the 5th-8th grade who have an interest in creative and performing arts, as well as students who are simply looking for a safe learning environment during the summer. Students will receive free breakfast and lunch through the School District of Philadelphia’s Food Service Dept., participate in athletics, as well as experience learning through different art forms (visual arts, music, dance, or theater).

Our mission for the STEAM Enrichment Summer Program is to provide quality education programming for all students through engaging visual and performing arts experiences. Designed to augment STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) with the inclusion of the arts (STEAM), this program will employ the visual and performing arts as a means to strengthen students’ mathematics and science competencies, promote healthy lifestyles through physical fitness and better nutrition, and enhance the development of students’ pro social behaviors and attitudes towards school.
