Carver summer programming includes Summer Enrichment (5-13-year-old students at two sites); Freshman Summer Success Academies (graduated 8th-grade students transitioning into 9th grade at Norwalk and Brien McMahon High Schools); and a Summer Middle School Transition Program.

The Carver Center is one of the best non-profits in the city of Norwalk, if not Fairfield County and maybe even the state of Connecticut.
