Students are recommended by their teacher for the program that best fits their current needs and in response to instructional gaps due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Camps run Monday - Thursday, 8:00 a.m. - 12 p.m., June 28th - July 22nd. Math Mindset will be held at Kennedy Middle School. All other Academic camps will be held at Masonic Heights Elementary. Reach out to your building principal with any questions.

Summer School for Credit Recovery

Summer School is a 6 week program that allows students the opportunity to regain credit. During this 6 week program students attend classes Monday-Thursday. We offer 3 sessions a day with each session lasting 2 hours for high school students and 1 ½ hours for middle school students.


Summer school has two paths that students can take to regain credit. First, students can opt to take in-person classes which are taught by a certified teacher. Students can take a total of 3 in-person classes. Second, students can opt to take online courses. These courses are overseen by a certified teacher. The online option provides students with a wider selection of course options and allows students to work at their own pace. High school students earn ½ a credit for each course that they successfully complete.


Summer school registration will be taking place from Monday, June 21st-Friday, June 25th using this link. Note: Middle School Summer School will open on June 16th. Please contact your child’s counselor before enrolling in any Summer school classes.

8th Grade Transition Camp

This year St. Clair Shores Adult and Community Education and Kennedy Middle School will be offering a 6-week 8th grade transition camp. This camp is designed to help with a student’s transition from middle school to high school. Many students that struggle at the start of high school struggle because of lack of foundational skills in Language Arts, Math, and Social-Emotional Wellbeing. With this in mind, we have developed a 6-week transition camp to focus on these 3 areas.


Our 8th Grade Transition Camp will open on June 16th. The deadline for 8th Grade Transition Camp registration is Friday, June 25th. Please contact your child's counselor before enrolling in 8th Grade Transition Camp.

5th Grade Transition Camp

This year St. Clair Shores Adult and Community Education and Kennedy Middle School will be offering a 3-week 5th grade transition camp. This camp is designed to help with a student’s transition from elementary school to middle school. Many students that struggle at the start of middle school struggle because of lack of foundational skills in Language Arts, Math, and Social/Emotional Development. With this in mind, we have developed a 3-week transition camp to focus on these 3 areas.


The deadline for 5th Grade Transition Camp registration is Monday, July 12th. Please contact your child's principal before enrolling in 5th Grade Transition Camp.
