I think it’s very valuable that Summer Outreach has a strong academic component, because it helps students to strengthen what they have learned throughout the school year. Jade Cohen '17
Each summer, we welcome 260 students for Summer Outreach, a co-ed enrichment program for students in grades 2-8. Representing nearly 30 schools in Fairfield and Westchester counties, this program provides academic, athletic, arts and technology instruction to academically qualified students with limited financial resources. Sacred Heart Greenwich Upper School students volunteer alongside a staff of paid faculty.

HeadStart Enrichment Program
The children from the Port Chester Children's Place at the Carver Center accompanied by the staff, spend Tuesday mornings at Sacred Heart Greenwich participating in enrichment activities and special presentations. Our purpose is to support to the daycare's curriculum by arranging story reading, musical activities, rhythmic exercise and animal presentations. The students also attend external field trips such as museums, town firehouse, library, farms, and aquariums. The students at Sacred Heart also collect Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets or gifts for the daycare families.
