Registration Now Open for Summer Academic Programs in Belton ISD

Registration is now open for Belton ISD’s summer academic programs that aim to keep students excited about learning year round.

“We’re approaching this summer with a growth mindset,” said Holly Moore, director of intervention. “Our summer programs are open to all students across the district, and our goal is that all students can develop their talents and learn new skills through hard work, good strategies and perseverance - all while having fun.”

Parents should register students based on their incoming grade, or the grade they will be in during the 2021-2022 school year. Families new to the district for the 2021-2022 school year are also eligible to register.
