Summer STREAM Program

Our Summer STREAM Program (Science, Theology, Robotics, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) introduces young students to great teachers and coaches, facilities, and courses offered at Holy Cross High School and provides them with individual attention to help them develop key skills.

The Summer STREAM Program provides an opportunity for boys and girls entering 5th to 8th grade this fall to spend the summer exploring what they are interested in the most!

Similar to how our current students pursue their academic interests throughout the year, the HCHS Summer STREAM Program allows individuals to select from a variety of courses that excite and inspire them, rather than limit students to a one-size-fits-all program.

Regardless of a student’s interests, the program provides an incredibly flexible, customizable, and meaningful learning experience for all. The program also allows students to meet future Knight teammates and friends, all while having FUN!

Space is limited in order to adhere to CDC and NYC DOH guidelines. Registration is first-come, first-served. No late registrations or walk-ins will be accommodated.

Families need to register for the Summer STREAM Program by June 30th.
