Looking for a safe place to leave your children this summer? 

SKILLZ is a PUSD approved summer school designed for current 7th and 8th graders (2021-2022). The program runs Monday - Thursday, from 8 AM - 3 PM, and is not your typical summer school. SKILLZ is built on an environment of love and support that focuses on social emotional learning to teach students how to process their emotions, communicate effectively, and create healthy boundaries to succeed in life. SKILLZ also offers students a fun new approach to math that focuses on improving students' feelings and basic understanding of math. 

All of our students will receive one on one college planning & support and be able to experience a variety of youth and family resources available to them. All program participants will also have the opportunity to participate with their family in our complementary family nights. Please note that SKILLZ is open to all PUSD students, however, priority will be given to those students who have failed a classes and need to make up credits.
