Santa Barbara Catholic School started conducting the first Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) entitled DISTRICT 12: Conquering the Summer Heat, Empowering our Mind, Heart, and Spirit last 2012. It was a 12-in-1 Interactive, Integrated, and Intensive course that focused on the development and formation of students’ knowledge (Study), abilities (Skill), and faith (Spirituality) through multiple-intelligence approaches and strategies. It aimed to provide the young students an enriching, rewarding, and meaningful summer learning experience through different formative courses that lead the young students in building and strengthening a community of committed Christians, creative thinkers, effective communicators and responsible members of the society.

“Summer Camp was super fun. I learned a lot of things. My favorite was when we learned how to cook and make things.” – Julianna Cayton
“My teachers in summer camp taught me a lot of things like how to cook or play sports, My favorite classes were cooking and watching movies. In cooking class I made sushi, omelette, parfaits, and colored pancakes.
