Summer School Educational Opportunities

An international summer experience may allow for Pierce students to broaden their perspectives about global educational opportunities. We encourage students and parents to seek out information about summer schools through research, self-exploration, self-reflection, and guidance from the school. We prioritize self-advocacy during the summer school search process.

The school provides the following links and document to help families with the process. These resources are by no means a complete list but will help our families in the search for a summer school program which may be a best fit based upon academics and finances. The school does not recommend one school or program, nor have any of them been endorsed by Pierce-ACG. These are provided only as a resource guide for our families and we ask you to check the individual program websites for details.
