Pontiac Academy for Excellence and OLHSA Head Start Preschool know that a strong community is necessary for academic success. All local residents are invited to come, mingle, get to know each other, and have some good old-fashioned summer fun.

OLHSA Head Start Preschool educates children ages birth to five years and supports families, including pregnant women. This free, federally funded preschool program has locations throughout Oakland County.

Pontiac Academy for Excellence is the only charter district in Pontiac to offer kindergarten through 12th grade. Sharing a campus with OLHSA Head Start means a seamless transition from preschool to kindergarten. This year all OLHSA Head Start Preschool students who enroll in PAE will receive free school supplies care of Winfire Management.

Enrollment for both OLHSA Head Start Preschool and PAE will be available at Summerfest.

Later this summer OLHSA and PAE will host another free event, Get Ready Get Healthy, on August 12. The event will feature free hearing, dental and vision checks along with school supplies and lunch.
