Summer Academy

We are delighted to unveil plans for Center City PCS’ Summer Academy.  Summer Academy is a Center City program designed to provide additional instruction to our students (rising 1st-8th grade) in small settings that will increase achievement and better prepare them for the next grade level. This year’s Summer Academy will be held at three campuses: Brightwood, Congress Heights and Shaw from June 26th-July 21st (closed on July 4th).  Students are encouraged to attend the campus that is closest to their home campus.

  • Scored at the 30th percentile or below proficiency on Winter MAP testing; and/or
  • Received a D or an F in ELA or Math; performed at least 1.0 GLE below grade level in ELA or Math.

As a result, families who meet either of the above criteria will be notified no later than April 11, 2017.
