Information About The Summer Rising Program:

New York City Public Schools (NYCPS) is looking forward to partnering with the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) once again for Summer Rising 2024. Summer Rising connects elementary and middle school students to fun, culturally relevant, and hands-on experiences that strengthen their academic, social, and emotional skills. Summer Rising is free, and open to any NYC student currently in kindergarten through grade 8. Students will be provided with free breakfast and lunch. Programming will include academics led by NYCPS staff and enrichment activities held by DYCD Community Based Organizations (CBOs).

The application will open in early March, and close in late March. This year, for the first time, families can apply for Summer Rising online using MySchools, the NYCPS's online directory and application system. To apply, log in or create a MySchools account at using your email address, your child’s 9-digit student ID number and a MySchools account creation code, which you can get by contacting your child's school. If you have applied using MySchools before, your child will already be added to your account. Families can list as many programs as they would like on their application; we recommend families list as many programs as possible to increase the likelihood of being placed in a program of their choice.

This process is not first-come, first-served; all applications will be considered at the same time after the window ends. If families wish, they can make changes to their application at any point within the application window. Offers will be released in mid-April. Log back in to MySchools to view your results.

If you have questions or need assistance with the application, please visit Ms. Jamie Gonzalez in the parent coordinator's office or email her at  Ask for her at the front desk.  She will be happy to help you!
