Oh what do you do in the summer time, especially if you have intellectual disabilities? Attend JFK Summer School!

JFK Summer School was created to give elementary and secondary students with intellectual disabilities a bridge from academic school year to academic school year. Summer school provides academic enhancement to skills that are often compromised for those with intellectual disabilities as they are away from instruction for two months each summer.

Academics are presented in a “lite” fashion by fun teachers, while community based outings, art, music, and socialization are presented. Students venture out into the community on a van together to see a movie, go to the local gardens, picnic in the park, provide a talent show for family and make and keep new and old dear friends.

JFK Summer School is a half day program, 4 days a week for 8-9 weeks during the summer. Participants are 8-18 years old.
