Summer Opportunities for Youth

Montgomery County Public Schools is planning a wide range of summer programs for elementary, middle, and high school students in summer 2022, at no cost to students. Most programs will span the month of July, with the exception of high school credit courses and the Extended Learning Opportunities (ELO) program in Title I elementary schools, which run slightly longer. Generally, in-person programs will take place in the morning, through midday. Afternoon programs sponsored by county and municipal agencies and outside providers will be available in selected schools. For more information, please visit the MCPS Summer Programs webpage or contact your local school.
