  • Remain Eligible - Attend by Wednesday, June 7, 2023

    All Summer Scholar students, participating in person at a school site or virtual, must attend or log-into their work by Wednesday, June 7, 2023, to continue their enrollment eligibility.

    Summer Scholars 2023 Registration Closed

    Registration began in February and closed April 12, 2023. Students in Grades 2,3, or 12 (Seniors) may be registered by the district after this deadline to support recovery for promotion and/or credits needed for graduation. Summer Scholars is open to CPS students in grades 2-12 only.  

    Students in grades 2-12 during the 2022-23 academic year registered for full or half-day programs. Registration indicated interest in participating in Summer Scholars and does not guarantee enrollment. Families will be notified of enrollment status after registration closes. All students enrolled will receive breakfast and lunch. For more information on the Summer Food Service Program, please visit our FAQ page.  Transportation is available for students who live one-mile or more from their Summer Scholars school. To receive afternoon yellow bus transportation, students must register for the enrichment program. Students in grades 9-12 that are eligible for transportation will receive a Metro pass. 

    Students in grades 2-8 participate for either a half-day or full-day.

    • Full-days - morning academics and afternoon enrichment programming.
      • The second half of the day will engage students in enrichment activities unique to each site, such as fine arts, STEM, athletics or civic engagement. 
    • Half-days - morning academic programs only. Students must be able to provide their own transportation. 

    Students in grades 9-12 only need to attend as many academic recovery blocks as needed.

    Why aren't all schools host schools? 

    ESSER (Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief) funding has significantly decreased this year and is set to fully discontinue next year. As we prepare for the removal of ESSER, CPS is providing adequate summer programs for families, but must do so by reducing the number of host sites. Additionally, due to scheduled building maintenance, some buildings will be closed in the summer. As such, CPS has reimagined Summer Scholars to enable financial and operational sustainability, and focus on credit recovery for students, while encouraging community-building across schools.
