CEF Summer Programs

Because education is often what takes place outside the classroom, CEF is dedicated to providing summer enrichment opportunities for TK-12th graders. Each summer in order to meet the needs of everyone in the community, we offer multiple programs through SLICE of Summer including (for the second year) our for credit classes for high school students in partnership with University of La Verne.
