Summer Rising - 2021 Summer School and More


P.S. 68X: Summer Rising

Summer Rising is New York City’s free school-based summer program for any City child in grades K–8. Summer Rising will integrate the strengths of DOE academics with the Department of Youth & Community Development’s (DYCD) school-based enrichment programming.

Students in grades K–8 learn, and engage with peers and caring adults in safe, supervised, and enriching ways. These programs will provide a bridge to the next school year and allow students to reconnect with one another and with their schools.

Students will address unfinished learning while being provided avenues for recreation, exploration, and fun.

For Summer Rising programs in grades K–8, families can sign up through the City’s Summer Rising page starting on Monday, April 26th.

Summer Rising Schedule

July 6, 2021 – August 20, 2021 (Excludes July 20, 2021) Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Message From Administration

Welcome to P.S. 68X- The Edward A. Fogel School for Critical Thinking and the Arts.

We are honored and privileged to serve as your school leaders. Collectively, we bring a breadth of pedagogical skills and educational leadership to our school community. Our goal as P.S. 68X’s administration is to bestow the type of leadership that will facilitate a school environment that provides the best possible learning experience that meets the needs of each student. As a result, we collectively work to deliver educational programs that are academically challenging, engage each student by linking the curriculum to prior knowledge and experience, while encouraging our children to find joy in learning and the exploration of new ideas. 

We believe that every child can learn and achieve success and we pledge to provide every child at P.S. 68X with the culturally responsive and quality education that he or she deserves. As a team, we commit to providing our faculty and staff with opportunities to strengthen their practice, fostering a culture of collaborative data driven processes, and shared decision making. 

Our mission at P.S. 68X is to meet the needs of our students by establishing a school culture based on safety, community, and rigorous instruction. We will provide students with the necessary skills, as well as social and academic behaviors that will prepare them to succeed in an ever-changing world. We envision that our students will become capable thinkers, responsible, and accountable citizens. 

Every child deserves a champion, someone who believes in him or her and goes above and beyond to ensure that he or she thrives. We are proud that at P.S. 68X, we are all champions for all of our children!
