PAEP Announces 3 Free Summer Programs

As part of the Philadelphia Arts in Education Partnership (PAEP) and Pennsylvania Department of Education’s 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant, we invite your child to participate in PAEP’s STEAM Summer Enrichment Program. The summer program runs Tuesday June 27th, 2017 through Thursday August 3rd, 2017 at three locations.

Your students entering the 5th-8th grade can choose from three STEAM Enrichment Summer Program Locations:

James G. Blaine School
3001 W. Berks Street
Philadelphia PA 19121 

Grover Washington, Jr. Middle School
201 E. Olney Ave.
Philadelphia PA 19120

John Welsh School
2331 N. 4th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19133

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.  Our program is held on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M. 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.
