Summer Rising Is Back for Students in Grades K–8 


New York City Public Schools (NYCPS) is looking forward to partnering with the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) once again for Summer Rising 2024.

New MySchools Summer Rising Application 

The application will open in early March, and close in late March. This year, for the first time, families can apply for Summer Rising online using MySchools, our online directory and application system. 

To apply, log in or create a MySchools account at using your email address, your child’s 9-digit student ID number and a MySchools account creation code, which you can get by contacting your child's school. If you have applied using MySchools before, your child will already be added to your account. For general support call 311. 

Families can list as many programs as they would like on their application; we recommend families list as many programs as possible to increase the likelihood of being placed in a program of their choice. 

 This process is not first-come, first-served; all applications will be considered at the same time after the window ends. If families wish, they can make changes to their application at any point within the application window. 

Offers will be released in mid-April. Log back in to MySchools to view your results. 

If you have any questions or need support with the application, please contact your school or email


Students with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) and 504 Plans 

Students attending 12-month/Extended School Year (ESY) special class or autism programs - Nest or Horizon Programs will receive the program and services recommended on their IEP at an Extended School year (ESY), District 75, or autism programs - Nest or Horizon Summer Program site. Families who wish to participate in IEP program and extended-day CBO-led enrichment through Summer Rising should use the application portal. Summer Rising for grades K–5 runs Monday– Friday until 6:00 p.m., and for grades 6–8 runs until 4:00 p.m. Monday–Thursday. These families will have priority for seats in Summer Rising and will choose from the CBO program(s) operating in connection with their IEP program. 

 If a family does not want extended day enrichment for their child, and their child will only be participating in Nest or Horizon programming (until 12:00 p.m.), D75 (until 2:30 p.m.), or ESY programming (until 2:00 p.m.), the family should contact their child’s school instead of using the application portal. 

 Students who require accommodations, such as a paraprofessional or nurse, to participate in Summer Rising will receive them based on their individual needs.
