Enrichment Programs

Grier offers a variety of Summer Enrichment Programs for students enrolled in the upcoming school year.

These programs begin before the academic year officially starts, allowing the students to return to campus in small groups, forge connections, develop skills, and have a blast!

In addition to their individual areas of focus, participants can enjoy excursions, activities, and meals together.

Permission forms for 2022-23 Enrichment Programs must be completed and returned to Grier School by August 1, 2022.
