Unleashing Potential’s summer enrichment programs provide learners with endless opportunities for discovery in a fun, safe, and nurturing environment! Our programs deliver learning experiences that are hands-on, innovative, and challenge children mentally and physically.
For scholars entering 1-5 grades, each week will highlight characteristics from other parts of our world while focusing on Character Development, geospatial content, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). Older scholars, children in grades 6-8, will work with technology, such as Microbits and Raspberry Pi, geospatial content with Story Mapping, and Project-Based Learning to impact our community through Design for Change. Students will discover their superpowers through the use of creative play.
Unleashing Potential's Summer Enrichment Programs are hosted at partner sites in St. Louis City and County to ensure caregivers and parents have affordable and safe options for their children during the school year and summer months.
