Summer Rise Program for Rising Juniors and Seniors

The Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) Department of Partnerships is partnering with businesses, non-profit organizations, higher education institutions, faith-based partners, and government agencies to provide a five-week, career-based learning summer program for rising high school juniors and seniors from June 26 to July 28, 2023

Since the inception of Summer RISE in 2017, more than 2,400 students have had opportunities to learn about careers within industries. The Summer RISE 2023 program will offer rising MCPS high school juniors and seniors in-person, virtual, or hybrid experiences to engage in career-based learning opportunities. Student experiences could include, but are not limited to, learning about healthcare professions, lesson planning, social service roles, the legislative process that starts with community outreach and ends in policymaking, becoming a photographer, the operations of running chemistry and biology labs and/or learning how companies or nonprofits function as a whole. Summer RISE is an opportunity for employers to grow their own staff, including MCPS. Recruitment for career experience host organizations is underway.

Registered students will express interest in learning about specific industries. Student acceptance will depend on host location availability in line with the career a student wants to experience. Students will be notified regarding their acceptance, placement, and host in the spring. Hosts will contact students to confirm a schedule for the career learning summer experience. Students accepted into the program will be required to attend a professional skills and financial literacy workshop prior to the start of the program. All students successfully completing the opportunity will receive a stipend and a certificate of completion from MCPS.

Important Dates:

  • Student registration opens at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 1, 2023.
  • Student registration closes at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 7, 2023.
  • The closing celebration will be held on Friday, July 28, 2023 to highlight the MCPS vision of workforce development and career readiness.


To learn more about the program:

  • Sign up to attend a Parent/Guardian and Student Information Session in-person or virtually
  • Visit the Summer RISE website where you can find information for students or hosts, preview required agreements, watch a video of 2022 participants and hosts, or access the registrations.
  • Encourage your student to apply, they MUST use their MCPS Google account!

COVID SAFETY REMINDERS FOR OUR COMMUNITY:

  • Do not come to school if sick. With COVID cases and variants still occurring, it is important to not report to school if your student has any signs of illness. In addition to the standard COVID symptoms (cough, fever, loss of taste and smell), signs of illness include: sore or scratchy throat, running nose, headache, chills and body aches. If your child has any of these symptoms, please keep them home until it can be confirmed they do not have COVID-19.
  • Wear an enhanced mask/face covering. All students and staff will be allowed to choose whether to wear a mask while in school. If you have concerns about exposure or immune levels, we recommend to wear a mask. In some cases, students returning from quarantine will be required to wear masks for certain periods. Masks will continue to be available on-site for those that need them.
  • Practice good hand and health hygiene. Wash hands frequently with soap and water, use hand sanitizer when soap and water is unavailable. Do not cough or sneeze around others or into your hands. Dispose of any tissue or items used for cough, sneezing or nasal use.
  • Vaccinate, and also get a Booster if you can. DHHS has now approved boosters for age 5 and up. You can find out more at the DHHS Vaccination Website: https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/covid19/vaccine/
