Hundreds of elementary, middle, and high school students in the city are supported each summer by academic and enrichment programming offered by the Netter Center for Community Partnerships at University-Assisted Community Schools.

For six weeks, from the middle of June through early August, this summer’s program served around 400 K-8 students at Lea, Comegys, Mitchell, and Hamilton schools in West and Southwest Philadelphia, and close to 200 high school students primarily from Sayre, West Philadelphia, Robeson, and Mastery-Shoemaker Charter School.
