Summer Enrichment

Avoid the Summer Slide and Turn Education into an Expertise!

Saint Pierre Academy Scholars have fun while putting their knowledge into working action for a company, cause, or community effort.

Our Academy is a cohort-based organization that helps scholars gain access to the best-fit college and career programs, scholarships, and award programs.  We combine Talent Identification with mentor-led immersion programs to engage, educate, and empower students to a lifetime of success.

Scholars will be exposed to emerging industries in STEM and Art-based professions.  They can choose one of at least three possibilities for our project showcase.  Summer Enrichment Options include (but are not limited to):
