For more than 20 years, Arrupe has hosted one of the largest summer enrichment programs for children in the City of Cleveland. Nearly 200 3rd-8th grade neighborhood kids register annually for the Arrupe Summer Program, held at nearby Urban Community School. During this five-week experience, each participant is matched up with a high school counselor who acts as a mentor and friend.
Attendees participate in daily classes covering math, language arts, science and healthy habits; receive breakfast and lunch daily; play sports and try out arts activities; and attend as many as four field trips to unique and interesting locations.
Junior high students participate in the Arrupe Explorers program, with activities and programs geared toward preparation for high school and career opportunities.
The 2018 Arrupe Summer Program took place from June 13 - July 12, 2018, at Urban Community School.
