We are pleased to announce our reopening for early childhood, youth and adult education summer programming.

Grace Place summer programs include a nine-week Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) class which began on June 8, a six-week elementary and middle school summer program beginning June 15, a five-week virtual high school program beginning June 15, and a combination of in-person, virtual, and hybrid adult education classes throughout the summer. In addition to Grace Place programs, we will be assisting Collier County Public Schools with credit recovery for middle and high school students virtually.

“Summer academic enrichment programs are especially critical this summer, particularly for students from already disadvantaged circumstances, like those Grace Place serves. As the safety of the students, volunteers, and staff is at the forefront of our minds, all program implementation will strictly adhere to the safety guidelines established by the CDC as well as our state and federal government,” comments Diane Ponton, Chief Program Officer at Grace Place.

We have taken thorough measures to ensure that all CDC health and safety requirements are met including the wearing of masks, temperature checks, social distancing, and recommended teacher-to-student ratios. All summer programs will operate with a limited capacity and utilize a staggered drop-off and pick up schedule.
