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. The majority of our Summer School staff members are in-district teachers and support staff members, we also attract teachers from surrounding school districts.

Privacy Statement

The Sun Prairie Area School District (the “District”) works with vendors who directly process credit card and debit card payments that may be made for registration and other services or activities. The District does not receive non-public personal information as defined under federal or state laws nor does the District receive Cardholder Data requiring compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). Nonetheless, the District’s website is secure and the District maintains full compliance with PCI DSS standards. The limited payment-related information that the District receives from its vendors is truncated and encrypted. We do not share this information. Should you wish to receive information related to our vendors’ privacy policies or data security standards, please contact us.

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.
