Summerbridge Louisville (SBL) is a free, 6-week summer academic program for underserved middle school students in JCPS. Our program is designed to help students from sliding academically during the summer months and keep them engaged in a variety of educational and extracurricular activities. SBL is different than most out of school programs as we focus on math, language arts, and character building in small classroom environments.
Each day is unique.
For six weeks, our days are filled with activities that inspire thinking, doing, and learning. From conflict resolution, to food literacy, to martial arts, we give our students new tools to help them navigate their environment.
Summerbridge hires and trains college students who have a passion for children and learning. These young people become mentors to our students and can more readily relate to the trepidation of middle school years, especially in our small classroom environment.
