English Plus is a program within Summer Plus for English Language Learners. Students will participate in camp-themed English enrichment literacy instruction, as well as hands-on Science and Mathematics to enrich their English skills and prepare for the upcoming school year. Students will participate in English enrichment programs in the morning and will join the Summer Plus enrichment activities in the afternoon. Bilingual teachers will be on-site during the afternoon program to provide support.

Transportation: Some students may be eligible for transportation from a hub location to their summer site, based on the distance between the two. Buses will pick students up at their regular schools beginning at 8:00 A.M. and will drop students off at their regular schools by 3:30 P.M. Students who are eligible for transportation will receive additional information in their confirmation letter.

Registration: To apply for the English Plus Program, please complete the application on the summer program site.
