• Summer Extended Learning Offerings

    June, July, & August 2021

    The Haverhill Public Schools is committed to helping children learn and grow during the summer months. Traditional summer programs attempt to minimize the learning loss and “summer slide” that comes with missing two months of instruction. The Haverhill Public Schools continues to expand its summer offerings, supplementing our traditional academic programs and a variety of hands-on enrichment programs with a strong focus on social/emotional development.

    Please see the variety of programs that we offer outlined below. Most are at no financial cost. Programs start and end on different dates/times and are subject to change. Please feel free to contact your student’s school with any questions.
