How will you spend your summer vacation?
The following programs are offered by or in conjunction with either Baltimore County Public Schools or the Maryland State Department of Education. Please direct any questions about these programs to the contact provided.
Extended Year Learning
Baltimore County Public Schools has as its first goal "To improve achievement for all students." We believe that all students will learn and achieve if given a quality education. Part of a quality education is the opportunity during the summer to participate in educational programs that will assist learners in developing and accelerating their skills and overall achievement. Since the implementation of No Child Left Behind legislation, a more specific focus on students scoring at the "basic" level on the Maryland State Assessment has been a priority. Visit the Extended Year Learning web site for complete details.
Summer Instrumental Music Festival
The Summer Instrumental Music Camp is a day camp for Baltimore County Public Schools’ instrumental music students who are currently in Grades 5–12 and are enrolled in their school’s music programs. During the camp, students will play in a band or orchestra at the appropriate grade level. In addition to large group rehearsals, students will participate in enrichment classes and will receive instruction to enhance instrumental performance skills. All of the musical ensembles will perform in a public concert in the outdoor amphitheater at Oregon Ridge Park, the summer home of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, in the evening on Wednesday, July 1, 2015.
Art Enrichment Program
The Baltimore County Summer Visual Arts Enrichment Program provides a wonderful opportunity for students in Grades 3-12 to build their personal art skills and add to their art portfolios. A variety of courses are offered to meet the varied needs and interests of the student whether the student is seeking to improve his or her art skills or is preparing a portfolio for consideration for GT coursework, acceptance into a magnet program, entrance into a college program, or preparation for an Advanced Placement exam.
