Summer Programs

  • Students of Dedham Public Schools have a variety of options available to extend their learning into the summer.  For some students, the offered programs provide a space to learn something new and prepare for a new school environment alongside fellow peers.  For others, the programs provide a chance to catch up or reinforce skills that could benefit from some extra support.     

    All programs have been designed to ensure students not only have access to the academic or social/emotional support they may need, but to also ensure that creativity, movement and fun are part of their day.   

     

    Summer Institute registration was held in February and is now closed.

    If your child qualifies for a support program, you will receive communication from our Student Services team regarding any next steps.

  • How do I register my child for a summer Academic Support program?

    Posted by:

    Summer academic support programs are available only to students who have been identified and recommended by school administrators. Your family will be contacted if the school believes your student would benefit from participating in one of these programs. If you have not been contacted regarding summer support services, but believe your child needs them, we encourage you to contact your child's teacher or principal with any concerns.

    Posted by:

    Yes! You may register your child for an Enrichment session in the afternoon, following their support program.   Online registration and payment for the Enrichment program will be required.  Please let the Avery Site Coordinator know if you are adding an Enrichment program to your student's day, so that she can help coordinate transportation adjustments.
