PPS SDA 2021 RFP Still Open! 

Pittsburgh Public Schools is still looking for enrichment providers to support the 2021 Summer Dreamers Academy!

The Summer Dreamers Academy (SDA) is Pittsburgh Public Schools 27-day premier summer learning camp- for free! At SDA, we aim to encourage a passion for learning and exploration and to motivate our campers to persist in the face of challenges. Our afternoon enrichment activities play a key part in helping our campers to develop the curiosity, self-confidence, and perseverance that are at the core of these two goals.

To ensure that we offer a wide variety of unique, fun, engaging, and educational afternoon enrichment activities each summer we ask that you consider submitting a proposal as an afternoon enrichment provider! Please click the link below to download a copy of the RFP.
