For K-8 students, AEF’s Summer Academy offers a wonderful blend of academic courses and fun enrichment classes. Elementary students have a wide variety of courses to choose from this year, including Mandarin or Spanish Dual Immersion Visual and Performing Arts Enrichment, Under the Sea: Marine Biology, Makerspace STEAM Lab, and Essay & Expository Writing in the morning. In the afternoon, there will be a K-3 Day Camp from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Ynez School.

AEF’s K-8 Summer Academy classes focus on preparing students academically for the upcoming school year in a fun, stress-free environment, and the enrichment classes help students think creatively, become problem-solvers, learn new social skills, and get a jump on curriculum for the coming school year.
