Summer at ASCS
At All Saints, we don’t stop teaching just because the school year is over. For 11 weeks during summer vacation we offer a full day program for children grades K-8 that combines STEM based learning with games, activities, and field trips so that students from all school districts retain what they’ve learned and finish the summer with a head start for the following school year.
