    The EDGE and Jazz Camp Programs

    Give your student The EDGE to help them develop skills and knowledge transferable to immediate scholastic accomplishments.

    As part of our ongoing partnership with Capistrano Unified School District, Saddleback Community Education has revised its College For Kids summer academics program to closely align and support the Core Curriculum taught during the school year at middle and high schools.

    The EDGE, a Saddleback College Community Education program, offers classes of academic enhancement in a high-interest student learning environment. Teachers empower students through exciting activities, academic rigor, and creative lessons. The EDGE equips students with the essential confidence and skills to achieve their full potential.

    Sessions and dates for 2023 are TBD.
