Design the class of your dreams!

For our fifth year, The San Marcos Promise is proud to offer LEAP, (Learning Enrichment to Achieve the Promise) an exciting afterschool & summer enrichment opportunity for students. This program, for students entering grades K-6 in the 2019 – 20 school year, is intended to provide enrichment courses designed and taught by talented SMUSD educators.

A recent poll of parents suggests interest in a variety of courses from character development and leadership to STEAM, VAPA, culinary arts and youth government. Our goal is to provide students the chance to take a LEAP into their futures by enrolling in a course designed to build pathways to 21st Century Success. Who better to design these pathways than our very own passionate teachers? 


Session dates depend on your particular school site. Teachers will perform duties as consultants for The San Marcos Promise.  Classes must enroll a minimum of 12 students in order to be funded.  Teachers will be paid an additional stipend per student enrolled in a class beyond 12 (typically class sizes are capped at 24).
