Summer Learning 2021: IGNITE

Summer 2021 will be an opportunity for the Grandview Heights Schools, students, staff, and community to connect, explore, bridge, and ignite our passions for learning! We are offering "in house" summer courses as well as sharing community summer learning opportunities that will bring our students together in enriching and interest-based experiences this summer. 


In addition to our extended school year and intervention programming, our summer offerings include academic, enrichment, exploration, and creative options. We also encourage families to explore the various summer learning opportunities in our community that are listed below.  To register for a course, download the attached PDF, and click on the link or hover over the QR code.  Please note: The Kindergarten Academy AM session is from 9 to 11 a.m., not 9 to 10 a.m. as listed on the PDF.  The registration link and QR code reflect the correct time.
