Power Scholars Academy: UPDATE
As we prepare for the transition into the next phase of shelter-in-place (SIP), our dedicated Y staff are preparing innovative new approaches to keeping scholars engaged and preventing summer learning loss.
After full exploration of the SIP guidelines, all San Francisco Power Scholars Academy (PSA) Programs will be conducted virtually.
Virtual PSA will still include all aspects of a traditional PSA program, including academic content from credentialed teachers and Y staff, small group support, enrichments, virtual field trips, social emotional learning, and more.
The program will begin on June 15th and run for 5 weeks. Please see the weekly schedule here.
We are still accepting applications for the program. See below for links to the application (note- the cover page has not been updated to reflect the virtual program).
If you have any questions, please check out our FAQ. If that does not answer your questions, feel free to email us.
