The STEM Program at Black Rock Forest is also open to scholars in grades 3 - 9.

Overall, the ESYP program will run for five days a week for four weeks. However, some Empire programs may be offered for less than this time. Some programs may be offered for a week, two weeks, etc..

Transportation and school meals will be available. School provided transportation is highly recommended for programs at Black Rock Forest and Denning's Point.
Please note: if a scholar's grade promotion is in doubt, for example, attendance in the academic recovery programs at the middle school or high school will take priority over attending the Empire enrichment programs.
