LCFEF Summer School has successfully provided programs for 7th and 8th graders since 2021. These courses are created each year in conjunction with La Cañada High School 7/8 administration to provide programs that bridge learning gaps while introducing students to the big campus and allowing them to meet students from the other elementary programs in our area. While our classes are developed with input from LCHS 7/8, non-LCUSD students are welcome to attend.
