In July, Rye Country Day's Academic ACTION program marked 35 years of community enrichment. This year’s four-week summer program for highly motivated students from local middle schools returned to its traditional in-person format, thanks to RCDS’s weekly pool testing program and daily health screening protocols. Over 60 rising seventh-through-ninth-grade students from nearby communities, including Port Chester, New Rochelle, and Yonkers, participated in engaging, project-based enrichment activities and classes in STEAM, leadership, robotics, playwriting, and more.
ACTION’s mission is to expand students’ academic and intellectual horizons by introducing interesting courses, new material, and engaging challenges. The program promotes confidence and strength of character while helping students grow academically and develop as leaders.
