Power Scholars Summer Academy

Summer is coming -- and we’ve got a fun, fantastic, free program just for Petersburg elementary school students. The Petersburg YMCA and Petersburg City Public Schools are working together to offer the Power Scholars Summer Academy.

Power Scholars combines academics plus enrichment to expand horizons. Our theme will be “Reaching for the Stars,” and you better believe we will be living that theme starting June 24 all the way through July 31.

We don’t want to wait till summer for the fun to start, so we’ve planned several family events so all Petersburg families can sign up for the summer program. It doesn't matter which Petersburg City Public Schools elementary school your children attend; all families are invited to participate in these events:

We’ll have food and fun at every family event, and we’ll make it easy for you to register for this summer’s Power Scholars Academy. Did we mention that it’s all free? So be sure to take advantage of this opportunity and keep your student on the road to success.

If you cannot get to one of the events. you can pick up a registration form from the front office of Cool Spring, Lakemont, Pleasants Lane or Walnut Hill.
