The Summer Compass program is a 7-week academic summer program with a recreational component for Cambridge Public Schools students. The first week is devoted to staff orientation and curriculum and classroom set up, followed by the 6-week program for children. The students selected for the program range from prekindergarten to grade five and represent a wide range of abilities and talents as well as cultural and linguistic diversity.
