‘Summer Rising’: NYC offers free k-12 summer school program

By: | April 14, 2021

New York City announced it will offer a new program called “Summer Rising,” an open invitation to free summer school for any student grades K through 12 who wants to participate. It will be open to both students assigned to summer school for remedial work and those just looking for fun activities.

“This ends summer school as we knew it,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

The program combines the traditional remedial summer classes run by the city’s Department of Education with free summer camps run by the city’s Department of Youth and Community Development.
