Summer School

The Sun Prairie Area School District offers one of the largest and most diverse Summer School Programs in the state.

Summer Educational programs are offered to students ranging in age from 4-18 year olds (high school seniors), and we provide district sponsored transportation and nutritional services.

Refund Policy

If you have canceled a student’s registration, the District will provide a full (100%) refund of registration fees so long as a refund request is made prior to the start date of the summer school session for which the refund is requested. If a refund request is submitted on or after the start date of the summer school session for which a refund is requested, no refund will be issued. If you have registered for both summer school sessions and have requested a refund after the start date of the first summer school session, the District will provide a refund for the second session only. Exceptions may be made in extenuating circumstances, at the discretion of the District. To request a refund, contact the coordinator for your child’s level.

Refunds may be applied to a student’s account (the account of the student whose registration is being canceled) or may be issued to you directly. Refunds will be processed as soon as possible, but generally take at least one month to process.
