Innovative academies for students in every grade

This isn’t just summer school. It’s an innovative, immersive summer experience that challenges your child to explore a world of possibilities both in and out of the classroom. It won’t even feel like learning as they forge their own path, dream up new ideas, and find meaning in everything they create. All while discovering endless ways to connect with friends and their interests.
Your child is more than a student. They’re a scholar. And at MPS they can explore, create and connect all summer long. Your Scholar belongs in MPS this summer. With five unique, engaging Summer Scholars Academies, there’s a place for everyone to experience more while growing their learning.
By discovering limitless ways to explore, create and connect in their Academy, MPS Summer Scholars begin the 2023-24 school year ahead of the pack and ready to learn. 
The GEMS-GISE-STEM Academy will have an option for students that are only able to join us this summer for a week or two!
Please note that all application grades listed are for a student's grade in the Fall of 2023. For example, a PreK student would complete a Grade K application, a current 5th grader would complete a Grades 6-8 application, and a current 8th grader would complete a Fast Track (9) application.
