This Summer

In 2023, students dove into a Summer Academy experience that empowered them to make waves in their own unique way. Students got to #makewaves as they dove into a transformative journey of self-discovery, personal growth, and embracing your individuality. The 2023 theme, "The Power of Being You," inspired students to embrace their quirks, talents, and interests, which fostered an environment that values diversity and inclusivity.

Through Summer Academy I learned about myself and gained new skills I can apply to the real world and school.
