As always, RGEC is committed to our community and its families.  All safety precautions and requirements are being followed to ensure all students, and staff are managed in a safe and secure environment. All RGEC Summer Sites will follow all safety precautions around Covid-19 practices and polices.

The summer program with RGEC is a great way for your kids to spend their summer learning and having fun while doing so. In preparation for delivery of a comprehensive Academic Enrichment Summer Program, Rio Grande Educational Collaborative prepares a curriculum binder which consists of hundreds of lessons and activities that reflect the summer program weekly themes. Each year’s theme offers Kindergarten through 5th graders a daily combination of in-class discovery and exploration, outdoor games and physical fitness, and hands-on applications of principles in world history, which is supported by our curriculum binder. Our unrivaled program presents essential Adventure, Teamwork, STEM, and Literacy concepts through the most creative activities. These lessons and activities in this curriculum binder combine learning and fun academic enrichment, bridging summer learning loss to satisfy parents, educators, and children.

This Year’s Summer Theme is “RGEC Journey Through Space & Time”
