Welcome to Albuquerque Public Schools Summer Learning Programs!

Albuquerque Public Schools offers Summer Learning Programs to meet the academic needs of students at elementary and high school levels. 

APS Summer Learning Programs provide students with an elementary Jump Start program at PED K3 Plus Grant selected sites.  We offer High School credit recovery to assist students in meeting grade level standards.

Summer programs can help the student take a step beyond and stretch the imagination, as well as maintain and recover high school credit.  We offer a real high school graduation ceremony for any senior who has met their current graduation requirements.

APS, the city of Albuquerque and Mission: Graduate are hosting a program that provides students a new way to continue learning this summer with passports they can get stamped when visiting participating sites such as museums and libraries. The program is  called Launch to Learn.  Details are available at Additionally, you can text L2LSummer to 51555 to sign up to receive weekly updates.

We hope you will find that Summer Learning offers an opportunity for students to grow intellectually, academically, and personally.
