Heroes Summer Academy
Join us for an energetic program centered on building better learners, readers, kids and heroes. Program includes field trips in conjunction with literacy, STEAM and various Social-Emotional quality learning curriculums.
Dubuque and Western Dubuque
Open to students entering Kindergarten-5th grade. Expect your child to work heavily on their reading and math skills, while learning how to be a great kid. Field trips will round out their enrichment, exploring the community and the surrounding areas, meeting new heroes and growing to be their own.
Full day options may be available in Dubuque through our community partners, the Boys & Girls Club & Leisure Services. These services are subject to change based on provider availability.
Open to 3rd through 5th grade students in Dubuque. This class will have a stronger focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math and will have a specialized curriculum and enrichment to dive deeper into the 5 components of STEAM.
To apply for Project S.T.E.A.M., select that you are interested on the registration form. St. Mark will then follow up with you regarding next steps!
How to Register
To register you will be required to pay a non-refundable registration fee of $25 per family. This is different from the tuition fee, up to $375 for the program, which is income based. All families must pay the non-refundable registration fee when they complete their registration form.
After the registration fee is received and the on-line form is completed, you will be contacted by the St. Mark staff regarding the status of your application. Although you may be approved for registration, a mandatory parent information session is still required before your child can begin attending program.
Based on what has been learned about COVID-19 in the past year, St. Mark looks forward to seeing your kiddos and staying in-person for the full 5 weeks of summer program. If closure is dictated by state and/or local public health officials, St. Mark will transition to a virtual model until it is deemed safe. If a full transition to a virtual model becomes necessary due to COVID-19, families will be reimbursed for the weeks of in-person program missed.
Payments can be mailed to our office address:
