K-8 Enrichment Programs

DoDEA Offers Summer Enrichment Program

The Department of Defense Education Activity is offering free four-week, half-day summer enrichment programs at 61 Defense Department schools for students in grades K-8.

The date for each summer program will be determined based on the local school schedule. The schools will offer the program from 9 a.m. until noon Monday through Friday.

Not all elementary and middle schools will have the summer program. The plans are to offer it at 15 schools in the Pacific, 27 schools in Europe and 19 schools serving military children who live on installations in the U.S.

Classes will be offered based on the level of interest from families and the confirmed enrollment. Parents should contact the local school office for more information and to enroll the student.

This marks the fifth year DoDEA has offered a summer program. The program is designed to reinforce and enrich students' learning through hands-on activities focusing on reading, math skills and science. The classes are not part of a remedial program and are not offered for credit.

DoDEA Press Release

The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) is offering a free four-week, half-day Summer Enrichment Program to many of its Space-Required students in grades K-8 again this year.

Classes will be held Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m., at selected school sites. The planned Summer Enrichment Program will be offered based on the level of interest from families and confirmed enrollment.

Specific dates will be determined based on local school schedules. The Summer Program curriculum will feature academic-enrichment activities emphasizing math and language arts. Transportation and lunch for the Summer Program will not be provided.

This will be the fifth year DoDEA has offered a Summer Program. Curriculum materials will again be provided by Voyager Expanded Learning. Through the Voyager programs, students in Kindergarten through grade 5 will experience the primary and intermediate levels of Mysteries, and students in grades 6-8 will participate in Media Magic.

Classes offered are not part of a remedial program (meaning they are not for credit) nor are they specifically designed to improve below-average skills. The classes are designed to enrich and reinforce student learning through engaging in high-interest, hands-on activities focusing on reading, math skills and science content.

For more information and to register your student, please contact your local school office.
