Scituate Public Schools Academic and Social Programs Academic Year 2020-21

Registration Deadline January 20: $25 late registration fee after this date

Programs are open to ALL SPS students, and are staffed appropriately so that children with special needs can successfully participate in them. 

We are pleased to once again sponsor another cycle of integrated academic and social programs, as outlined in this brochure. For each program, we have identified highly qualified SPS staff and aide support to provide a low staff to student ratio (usually 1:3 for social groups and 1:4 for academic courses) to assure the quality of this programming for our students.
