I'M SAFE Program at Museum School

The I'M SAFE (Integrated Museum School Academics Fun & Enrichment) Program is one of several state-funded Expanded Learning Programs (ELP) offered by the YMCA of San Diego County in partnership with the Museum School.

The I’M SAFE Program will strive to ensure that all students are academically socially, culturally, and physically healthy. In collaboration with the YMCA of San Diego County, along with the Museum School, children, and their families we will work together to assure that our program serves in promoting entire student development and lifelong learning.

  • Number of days student will attend program.
  • Length of time student will attend program.
  • Students not accepted for participation will be placed on the waitlist and will be accepted as space becomes available.
  • Families must re-apply each school year as current enrollment does not guarantee enrollment in future school years.

Enrollment is also determined by:

  • Total space available in the program at each school
