Every Student. Every School. Every Day. DONATE!

Summer Enrichment Program 2021

Calling all teachers!  2022 Summer Program planning is underway!

Use our new and quick submission portal to propose your fun and engaging class idea. All subjects will be considered –  from math, language arts and science to art, music, sports and so much more.

Do you have a hobby that students would enjoy learning? Do you speak another language you’d like to teach?

Course proposal submissions will be accepted Oct. 29 – Nov. 29.

Exact 2022 summer dates are TBD, but our program is expected to begin in mid June. The time commitment is 5 hours per day.

PUSD teachers will be given preference, but all teachers and content area professionals are welcome to submit an idea for grades Pre-K – 12.  We’re open to all class ideas that make summer learning a joy!

Questions? Contact Jamie Powell, Summer Program Manager at jpowell@pasedfoundation.org.


Enjoy Our Summer Virtual Open Houses!

Wow-the last 5-weeks of the PEF Summer Enrichment Program sure did fly by!

The 18th year of the PEF Summer Enrichment Program might have looked a bit different this year,  but it was still filled with opportunities to create, grow, and connect in energetic and engaging ways. While we couldn’t have our families on campus for Open House this year, we created some Virtual Open House videos for you to enjoy.

Scroll down for videos from each campus plus Summer Youth Leaders and the final performance of the fabulous Pasadena Musical Theater Program!

While we weren’t be able to be physically together last year, we brought some of your favorite summer teachers to you. We created a  new website with lessons for grades PreK-12 in a variety of fun subjects like robotics, cooking, visual art, dance, yoga, and more.

Video lessons are available to watch at anytime and have lesson plans to download, too!
