Camp PCAT

During the summer months, PCAT offers additional programs that are targeted for students based on age, interest and needs. Students in elementary and middle school who are interested in STEM and the Arts and are in need of academic support blended with games and recreation enroll in Camp PCAT, a fee for service program. Students in 8th grade may apply to enter the R.E.A.L. STEM program, which offers career focused enrichment in STEM. Students in high school who are in need of academic remediation may enroll in credit recovery, and those looking for work experience may enter PCATWorks.
