Summer Enrichment Program (SEP)
King’s Academy’s Summer Enrichment Program is a community outreach program whose mission is to affirm King’s Academy’s role in and commitment to providing high quality education to Jordanians regardless of their socioeconomic background.
King’s Academy organizes SEP annually during the summer holidays to enroll high achieving students from less advantaged areas around Jordan to help them develop their English and information technology skills. SEP provides students with enriching educational opportunities in English and information technology through over 25 hours of weekly classroom hours in English and five hours of IT as well as a number of seminars and workshops on different current local and regional issues.
Students currently in grade 7 may apply to the program, which runs for two consecutive weeks. Students join the program annually until they reach 9th grade, as long as they are in good academic and behavioral standing at SEP and in their current schools.
To guarantee the best experience for students, classrooms are designed to have 10 to 12 students only with qualified young educators working with them. SEP provides its students will all educational materials necessary.

SEP takes place on the campus of King’s Academy in Manja, Madaba. Students reside in single rooms in gender-segregated dormitories under direct supervision of the program teachers and administrators who reside in the same dormitories. Meals are provided in the school’s dining hall in family style sit-down lunches and dinners. King’s Academy covers all program expenses in order to ensure families do not have to bear any financial burdens. It is important to note that enrollment in the program does not necessarily ensure admission to King’s Academy.
