summer learning electives westport ctThis has been an unprecedented year for everyone across the globe. The pandemic has changed the way we live, work and play. We've all had to be flexible moving part of our lives online. Fortunately more and more people are getting vaccinated and summer is a welcome respite.

The Connecticut State Department of Education has issued its priorities as grant funding for Connecticut has been made available to address the challenges incurred from the pandemic. These educational priorities include addressing learning loss and promoting positive social and emotional well-being.

Westport Public Schools, in partnership with Westport Continuing Education, has initiated a Summer Electives program for students entering grades K-12 in the fall. The classes are listed below. These grant-funded programs are offered at no charge for students attending Westport Public Schools. The summer programs have limited enrollment and are available on a first-come, first served basis. Registration is online unless noted otherwise. Please make sure that you have a WCE account and register for the classes below.

A catalog of the Summer Electives offerings is online here >>

While there is no cost for the program, we ask that students and families commit to attending all sessions that you sign up for. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact Westport Continuing Education at conted@westportps.org or call 203-341-1209.
