In accordance with the guidelines set by the San Mateo County Health Directors, our Tools for School program for this summer will be going virtual. It is Mercy’s hope to help keep families safe, while at the same time offering some educational and co-curricular opportunities.
We will be offering Tools for School virtually - the cost for the four weeks will be $500.00 per child. The program will be held Monday, June 15- Friday July 10th, and classes will run Monday-Thursday with Fridays off. We will be providing resources for virtual field trips and adventures that students can do with their siblings and families on Fridays. Additionally we plan to celebrate a virtual culminating assembly on Friday, July 10th.
The virtual program will include a Math/Science combination and English/Reading combination so that students can complete any required summer work they may have been assigned and work on strengthening their skills in these academic areas. We will also be offering American Sign Language, Art, Music and there will be some surprises also!
9:00am - 11:45am - Virtual Class via Zoom
11:45am - 12:30pm - Break for lunch

Tools for School is a unique summer program tailored for incoming 6th, 7th and 8th grade girls. With a long tradition of excellence in girls education, Mercy High School Burlingame hosts a balanced mix of visual and performing arts classes, academic skills-building, and weekly educational field trips. Students can express their creativity through dance, photography, music, and 2D & 3D art. They will improve academic preparedness in math, reading, and writing classes, and learn coding basics and American Sign Language. Students will be engaged and excited by field trip destinations such as the Exploratorium, Muir Woods, Rosie the Riveter Museum, California Academy of Sciences, and the Autodesk Gallery.
At Tools for School, the girls will experience new activities, explore new topics, and visit interesting local attractions. Join this innovative summer program that helps to build a foundation of inquiry and love of learning in students, and prepares them to develop their passions in high school.
