Summer Programs

Please Note:

Students are now able to register for the Middle School World Language program through the HCPSS BSAP/K-9 Summer Institute. Rising 8th graders, who were not enrolled in world language in grade 7, may enroll in French or Spanish this summer. Successful completion of this course will prepare students to enroll in the appropriate grade 8 language course for the 2015-2016 school year. The course meets from June 29 – July 24 from 8:30am – 12:15pm at Lime Kiln Middle School ($275). Students have the option of also registering for the afternoon enrichment sessions with the BSAP/K-9 Summer Institute ($550).

Although this course was listed in the HCPSS Summer Catalog, it was not available on any of the online registration forms, prohibiting students from enrolling. If you have any students interested, please encourage them to complete the online registration form on the summer school website.

Each summer the HCPSS presents a number of learning experiences and educational opportunities by offering a wide variety of programs and classes. These programs and classes are open to Howard County residents as well as out-of-county residents.
