Middle School Programs

Important Note about Summer 2020 Middle School Programs

While we are committed to nurturing the creative development of young artists, designers, and scholars, the COVID-19 pandemic requires us to continue to be diligent in considering their safety, the health of our campus community, and the well-being of our shared society.  With this in mind, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Continuing Studies Children’s Workshops, Family Camps, and Middle School Programs scheduled to take place this summer.

We look forward to being able to welcome your child back to campus as soon as we are safely able.

If you are interested in an online summer offering for your child, or in receiving emails with ideas to spark creative thinking and play this summer, request more information here. While our physical office is closed at this time, we are available to answer any questions you may have. You may reach us at 312.629.6170, or cs@saic.edu
