  • Register for the Summer Rising Program

    Registration is now open for Summer Rising, NYC's new free summer program for students in grades K–12.

    Summer Rising will offer academic and social-emotional support, arts, and recreation. There will also be local field trips to parks, pools, and other enriching outdoor venues that are both educational and meet State health and safety guidelines.

    Breakfast, lunch, and a snack will be served to each student.

    Families of students in grades K-8 can sign up here. If you are a family of a student in grades K-8 and you do not see your site listed, please complete this survey and you’ll be contacted when a program opens in your neighborhood. We’re adding new ones every Monday through mid-May. After you sign up for a program, you’ll receive an email confirming your registration.
