Pepin Academies is taking applications for students in grades 3-7 at its new Riverview campus on Lake St. Charles Boulevard.

Pepin Academies accepting applications: The Pepin Academies continues to accept applications for the upcoming school year for its new Riverview campus, 10522 Lake St. Charles Blvd. The Riverview campus will serve ESE students in grades 3-7. The school plans to later add eighth grade and high school. For information, call (813) 677-6700.

Photography classes: The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts is offering two photography classes for children in July called Post-Apocalyptic Photography. Students will learn about taking photos without technology like USB cables, batteries and SD cards by imagining what it would be like to document a postapocalyptic world. They will learn how to create a camera that takes "old-school" photos. The July 15-19 session is for ages 11-15. The July 22-26 session is for ages 7-10. The cost per session is $160, or $140 for members. Visit fmopa.org/class-listings to register. For information, call (813) 221-2222.

Middle school summer program: Jesuit High School continued its Summer Bridge program with 40 middle school boys this year. Boys entering grades 6-8 who are at or above grade level, most from Hillsborough County public schools, have been participating in the program since last month. The students study math, grammar, reading and critical thinking taught by teachers, Jesuit alumni and Jesuit students each morning, and participate in electives like sports, cooking, art, music, robotics and videography in the afternoon. This is the program's third summer. Jesuit recruits students for the program by contacting middle school principals, guidance counselors and gifted teachers.

Student award: Francesca Giorgianni, a recent eighth-grade graduate of St. Lawrence Catholic School, was awarded the Monsignor Laurence Higgins Award for Excellence. She has volunteered with Feeding America, Everyday Blessings, Pinellas Hope and the St. Lawrence Catholic Church Vacation Bible School. She is also a member of the National Junior Honor Society and the school's forensic team. She was accepted to the IB program at Hillsborough High School. The award is given to students who use their time in service to others while maintaining high academic standards.
