SummerPrep, Sandia Prep's summer program, offers enriching and creative classes – and an opportunity to learn new skills or build on existing talents. More than 50 tech, art, athletic, and academic classes are offered every year for students in Pre-K through high school. We foster discovery and exploration and encourage students to enjoy themselves in a safe, supportive environment.

Important Information for SummerPrep Families

SummerPrep 2022 Orientation 
Saturday, June 4  
10:00 a.m.   
Sandia Prep's West Gym

Orientation will start promptly at 10:00 a.m., and you won’t want to miss it. Along with picking up your signature SummerPrep t-shirt and familiarizing yourself with your child’s class schedule, you’ll learn important information regarding:

  • Pick-up and drop-off procedures
  • How to purchase lunch and snacks (Snacks! This should have been the first bullet point, we agree.)
  • Our new SummerPrep office location
  • And so much more

After the orientation, your family will visit classrooms, meet teachers, and get answers to any lingering questions. You’ll be free to go once everyone feels fully oriented and totally excited. 

Announcing the Prep Pass - Starring Your Camper!

The Prep Pass is a photo ID card that will serve as your child’s name tag and will be used to check in and out of camp each day. The Prep Pass hangs on a lanyard to be worn easily throughout the camp day.

Each morning at drop-off, you will enter the main building and check your child in at one of the iPads. At pickup, you will then check them out in the same location. It is very important that they are checked in and out every day, so don’t forget the Prep Pass!

Campers will have photos taken for their Prep Pass at orientation on June 4. Prep Passes will be available for pick up during morning drop-off the first week of camp. For those unable to attend orientation, Prep Passes will be available on the first day of camp.

In the future, if your Prep Pass is lost, or you need a replacement, come to the SummerPrep Office in the Admission Lobby. The first lost Prep Pass will be replaced at no cost. There is a $20 charge for subsequent replacement passes.

Pre-Ordering Lunches at SummerPrep

Who's hungry? We know our campers will be! The Prep Café serves up delicious food all summer long, saving parents the scramble of packing lunches. Parents are able to pre-order lunches using Sandia Prep’s food service account provider, MyKidsSpending. (Important: Lunches must be pre-ordered. Meals will NOT be available for walk-up purchase.)

How to Set Up Your MyKidsSpending Account
To set up your account, please follow the instructions here. You will be asked to provide your child’s Student ID number. (Please set up your account early since it can take up to 24 hours for your account to be activated.)

Student ID Number for MyKidsSpending Account
  • If you have not received your child's unique MyKidsSpending Student ID yet, please contact our IT Department at [email protected]
  • If your child attended Sandia Prep for the 2021-2022 school year, your child's Student ID will be the same one that was used to pre-order lunches during the regular school year. (The Student ID can be found in the Prep Parent Portal under your child's photo.)

MyKidsSpending Mobile App
Also available is the MyKidsSpending mobile app. The app will allow parents to pre-order lunches up to one week in advance. 

  • For questions about the Prep Café, please contact Food Services Manager Ann Dee Gonzales at [email protected].

  • For technical issues, please contact the Sandia Prep IT Department at [email protected].

Did you know that the Prep Café in the cafeteria offers breakfast every morning from 7:30 - 9:30 a.m.? Use cash or MyKidsSpending on the spot. No pre-order necessary!

SummerPrep’s security team are here to assist you with the daily after-camp pick-up of your child(ren).

Below is a photo of how the front parking lot pick-up lanes are arranged.

The three vehicles in the middle of the photo represent lanes where parents may park while waiting for their student(s). They may move forward as other parked cars ahead pull out. The two lanes, represented with the white arrows, are drive-through lanes, only to be used after parents have picked up their child(ren).

We ask parents to please be mindful of their speed (5 mph) when exiting via the drive-through lanes, and to obey the directions of our security team, who help with the flow of both student and vehicle traffic.

We're here to help if you have questions. Contact us anytime at [email protected]!
