We are dedicated to providing English Language Learning students with academic exercise to enhance their academic skills and confidence during the summer.
Dear friends and partners of PDX Summer School,
After six years of providing a high-quality program to first through eighth grade English Language Learners, PDX Summer School is closing our doors. Although the need for services like ours is growing in our community, we find it unfeasible to continue providing our service due to funding and capacity issues.
We will truly miss our wonderful students, families, teachers, and school and community partners. As members of the Board of Directors, each of us remains committed to supporting students in a different capacity and are exploring what comes next. We freely offer our learnings and expertise to any and all who wish to discuss summer programming for Emerging Bilingual students.

By improving reading, writing, and math skills we strive to advance every student toward achieving proficiency in their grade level.
Help us create a world where every English Language Learning student has the tools they need to be successful in the classroom.
