Inspired. Distinctive. Balanced.
Summer@PBS inspires students to deepen their academic learning, engage their curiosity and pursue their passions. We are excited to offer PBS families early access to reserving the limited number of spaces in our program. This year we will be opening registration up to our neighbors and local community members in addition to current PBS students.
We encourage early registration as spaces are limited!
Extending Our Program
Our faculty has designed an enrichment experience for rising K–5 students that extends the PBS approach to education into the summer, allowing students to expand their intellectual capacity and love of learning into areas beyond the core curriculum. We’re excited that our program will deliver our mission and core values the PBS way.
During each week of the program, students will…
- Be welcomed into a student centered community
- Discover new interests
- Deepen their academic learning
- Develop lifelong skills
- Nurture friendships new and old
- Keep summer a special time
The core program of morning class, lunch, and afternoon class is $575 per week. Morning care and afternoon care are offered for $100 per week each, a 20% savings off of the $25 daily drop-in rate.
Hot lunch is offered daily through our vendor Flo’s Friendly Foods at an additional cost; families may, alternatively, send lunch to school each day. (NB: The school’s food-safety policy remains in effect throughout the summer; the campus will remain nut-free.)
We want our program to be available to all families, so financial aid is available to families who will be receiving aid from PBS for the 2020-2021 school year. Email Special Programs Manager Tanner Taylor for details.
Summer@PBS is designed for students entering Kindergarten through 5th grade in the 2020–2021 school year. Classes are grouped K–2 and 3–5.
The program will run the weeks of June 15, June 22, July 6, July 13, July 20, and July 27.
We have designed the daily schedule to reflect our faculty’s belief – backed by research – that kids need a break during the summer from the increasingly fast pace of the school year. Enrichment activities are scheduled for the middle of the day, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. For those families that need additional childcare in the morning or afternoon, we offer less structured (but still well supervised) morning and afternoon care at an additional charge.
|Morning Care*||8:00–10:00 a.m.|
|Morning Class||10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.|
|Afternoon Class||1:00–3:00 p.m.|
|Afternoon Care*||3:00–5:00 p.m.|
* Morning and afternoon care are offered at an additional charge.
