Summer Early Focus 2019 - student lottery application (English)
Apply for a seat in a Boston Public Schools Department of Early Childhood Summer Early Focus program!

Please note that seats are limited. We will conduct a lottery to accept students or place on a waitlist.

Summer Early Focus is a 5-week summer program that will provide additional support to children in reading, writing, and math. There is no cost to attend this program. Class sizes will be small to provide each child with the individual attention s/he will need. Children will also have classes in dance, music and physical education, have visitors who teach them about what they are learning in class (such as the New England Aquarium), and go on field trips such as the Franklin Park Zoo and Boston Children's Museum. Summer Early Focus will build your child’s skills in critical thinking, creativity, social awareness & relationships, teamwork and self-regulation - all while having fun!
