We support approximately 3,000 4K-12 students in our Summer School Program, which provides our youngest learners (4K) with an introduction to what school will be like in kindergarten and our oldest students (9-12) with credit-earning classes. Students have the opportunity to strengthen their skills in math, reading, physical education, art, music, tech ed, and many other areas through a wide variety of enrichment classes aligning with core content area standards. Middle and high school students can also participate in a robust strength and conditioning physical education program. During the program, teachers are encouraged to use the outdoors as much as possible for their "learning laboratories." Most of our Summer School staff are teachers and support staff who work with out students during the regular school year.

Beyond our five-week Summer School program, students can take music, agriculture, and theatre classes throughout July and August. Other learning opportunities include a middle and high school orentation, advanced placement "boot camps" for high school students taking college-level courses in the upcoming school year, and the Sound of Sun Prairie. The Sound of Sun Prairie, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary, is an extracurricular marching band composed of dozens of students in grades 8-12.

The Sun Prairie Area School District offers Traffic Safety classes during Summer School. Since there is a statewide shortage of certified teachers, the District only offers Behind the Wheel training if/when certified Driver’s Education teachers are available. If you desire to complete the program as quickly as possible, we strongly encourage you to pursue a Private Driving School.
