Please note, due to COVID-19 capacity restrictions, we’ve had to limit the number of 2021 Summer Program participants.


It is possible that we may be able to offer free breakfast and lunches as was provided in past years, however, we are not able to make that determination at this time. Therefore, parents/guardians should be prepared to have a packed lunch each day for their student. Notifications will be sent as soon as a determination has been made.

Acceptance Notification

Program acceptance letters and additional program details, including if we will be able to offer free lunches again this year will be mailed by June 16, 2021


Transportation may be provided by your home school district. Pick up and drop off times will be determined at a later date and communicated through the local school districts. ACHIEVE does not provide transportation to and from program, If your school district does not provide transportation you will be responsible. Please direct transportation questions to your home School District.

Summer Work Study Program

The Summer Work Study Program offers students (15-21 years of age) a unique opportunity to work an hour per day, learning valuable vocational skills they will need to transition out of school into employment. Additionally, 2 hours a week of curriculum time reinforces these skills. This successful program teaches them to; follow directions, team work, communication skills, responsibility, and much more, all while earning a paycheck! Space is limited. If you would like your student to be considered for this program please indicate by placing and “X” in the YES box on page 2 of the application packet.

Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504

For a student to attend Summer Program they must have a current IEP or 504. Your packet includes an Academic Sheet, (Section Three). Please sign the top of the form and give it to your child’s teacher to be completed. Attach the IEP or 504 to the form and return it to ACHIEVE. Students graduating in 2021 are still eligible to attend ACHIEVE Summer Program.

Physician’s Certificate and PPD MANTOUX TEST

Arrangements should be made with your physician’s office for your student to have a PPD Mantoux test as well as a follow up appointment with your physician to have the test read. The Summer Program medical staff must review the Physician’s Certificate form (Section 4) before a student is accepted for the Summer Program. 

Looking forward to another Great Summer!
