SPEF Summer School


Each year, more than 2,000 students count on South Pasadena Educational Foundation’s Summer School program to brush up on basics, jump ahead on critical academic topics, expand their skills and ignite their imaginations. SPEF offers proficiency and enrichment classes to students of all ages – from incoming kindergartners to high school seniors. This is SPEF’s most significant initiative and it would not be possible without hundreds of hours of volunteer support.

Online Enrollment For All Programs

We heard you! SPEF has moved to online enrollment for Summer School, Camps and other Programs! SPEF is excited to announce that we have moved to an online registration system for our SPEF Programs, which we expect to positively impact our program in several important ways:

  • The new online enrollment process is easy and you can conveniently enroll your students from home.
  • Eliminates the perceived need for parents to  line up before sunrise or return to  wait in long registration lines to enroll for Summer School.

If you haven’t already enrolled online for a SPEF Afterschool class – in order to prepare for the upcoming summer school enrollment in March, we encourage you to take the following steps now:

  • Once logged in, click on the Manage People and Household Information button at the bottom of the page to edit Parent & Household details and Add children living in the household.
  • Save your data or changes, and then you are ready to enroll in SPEF programs, including After school classes, Summer school and Camps.

Please feel free to call the SPEF office if you have any questions regarding our new online enrollment process at 626-441-5810 ext. 1163.
