2020 SEF Summer Academy Program Cancelled due to COVID 19

Since 2013, the SEF Summer Academy program has served thousands of students hailing from San Gabriel public schools and surrounding communities. Proudly providing grades 1-12 enrichment and get ahead course options, it is one of our most important and enjoyable programs of the year. We are heartbroken to have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s program. This decision has been the hardest decision we have had to make during one of the most challenging times of all of our lives. Please know that it was made after thorough deliberation with our board president and was based on the current state of affairs surrounding the pandemic.

We truly appreciate your understanding during these unprecedented times and of course your continued partnership with the Foundation. We will continue to strive to build community online. Visit the SEF Facebook page often where you will find information surrounding free enrichment and educational opportunities for your students. We wish them, and all of you, the best today and always!

FREE Online Performing Arts Classes Extended to May 15th

We are excited to announce that the PopRock FREE Online Performance Academy for elementary students has been extended to May 15th!!

Sincere thanks to our community business partners, and GHS Alumni, for providing an online performance programming academy for our youngest learners. Space in the program is still available for you to register… sign up today!

The program, offered 5 days a week, has provided engaging and interactive lesson plans surrounding multiple disciplines in the arts. Students have been singing, dancing, acting, and creating together. We have seen characters come to life, diction and public speaking skills improve, and smiles that have brightened our days.

SEF’s goal is to provide a quality online enrichment program where students have the ability to participate equally; gain confidence in their abilities and talents through the process; develop an appreciation for music, theater and dance and to feel encouraged to aim for higher levels of performance and education in the arts.
