Summer Programs

IPSF 9-12 Academic Camps

This summer, the Irvine Public Schools Foundation will be running a summer enrichment academy, titled the IPSF Summer Academy, which will run concurrently with the Irvine Unified School District’s Summer School at Irvine High School.  The Academy will offer enrichment opportunities for high school students (including incoming freshmen) in a variety of academic and elective areas.  Although located on the same site and scheduled during the IUSD Summer School session, this program will be a separate entity, run entirely through IPSF, and not subject to traditional classroom requirements or hiring protocol.

The Academy will run Monday – Friday, June 30th – August 8th, with no school on the July 4th holiday.  Class will be held during two sessions (7:30 -9:45 AM, and 10:00 AM -12:15 PM) with most courses being offered during both sessions.  In addition, the Academy will run a Study Skills class in three, 2-week sessions from 1:00 to 2:00 PM.
