About the school photos Group

“The greatest thing about Santa Cruz Montessori, for me, is all the great friends I made while I was there. The environment allows you to develop great relationships with people.”—SCM Alum

Our summer session includes a range of fun and stimulating sessions in sports, arts, outdoor education, and academic enrichment. From part-time to full-day programs, each with a special focus, you have the flexibility to plan an active, exciting, and educational summer for your child. Please call for a complete schedule of summer classes and summer camps.

Santa Cruz Montessori summer programs are open to children from ages 18 months to 12 years. Each of our classes/camps is limited in the number of children attending, and the small class size allows us to provide attention to each child in a family atmosphere.

Primary Summer Classes

The goal of our Young Children's Community and Primary summer classes (18 months to six year olds) is to provide a relaxed and interesting environment for our youngest students. The classes can be used for care throughout the summer or for a short session of enrichment. Each session has a special focus within the regular Montessori class environment.

Children 18 months to 6 years old can attend for as little as a few hours each day to full days (8:00 am–5:30 pm for children 3-6 years old). See below for more details about the summer camps for 2016. For a more complete description of 2016 summer programs and a summer camp application, view our online schedule here: 2016 SCM Summer School Schedule.

Elementary Summer Programs, Classes, and Camps

Our elementary summer program (6–12-year-olds) gives children opportunities to explore areas of interest in more depth and also provides full-day recreation programs for students needing care. Camp experiences are also available; they let children experience the beauty of Santa Cruz, and all that the Monterey Bay Area has to offer, through boogie boarding, cooking, writing, singing, dancing, guitar, web design, and computer animation camps. Children 6 to 12 years old can attend for as little as a few hours each day to full days (8 am–5:30 pm). See below for more details about the summer camps for 2016.
