Alhambra Educational Foundation accepting students for summer programs

Registration is now open for the Alhambra Educational Foundation's (AEF) K-12 summer programs. Alhambra Unified School District's official fundraising partner will host a six-week Monday-Thursday summer program for both elementary and high school students, which will include arts, music, writing, science, math, and college preparatory courses. 

"AEF’s K-8 Summer Academy classes focus on preparing students academically for the coming school year in a fun, stress-free environment," said a statement from the nonprofit organization. "AEF’s Summer High School continues to be one of the more popular summer schools in the San Gabriel Valley. AEF offers courses that will help students ‘get-ahead’ with the credits and course work needed for graduation and college admission."

More than 800 students enrolled in the 2013 K-8 program, a 50 percent increase from 2012, according to AEF Executive Director Sheryl MacPhee. Offerings for elementary students will be held at Ynez Elementary School and Mark Keppel High School in 2014, and include marine biology, film and literature, theater, journalism, and music.

AEF's summer high school program includes high school preparatory classes in math and writing, speech and debate, and English immersion. Students can also enroll in high school biology, chemistry, world history, U.S. history, and math classes.  More than 1,000 students from 22 local schools attended the Western Association of Schools and Colleges-accredited high school program in 2013.

Parents and students can register for the summer programs, which run from June 9 through July 17, at the AEF office at 1515 W. Mission Rd. Registration will close the week of June 9. Partial scholarships are available for K-8 applicants. More information about available courses and tuition fees are available for download from the AEF website
