Summer Summit 2018 Banner (6)

You've probably been seeing emails about the Freckle Summer Summit or have heard your colleagues talking about it. You might be wondering things like...

What are the activities during the 2-day Summit? Can my family join me for the trip? Are there other folks traveling from out of state? How much will it cost? Are there affordable hotels nearby? 

We're here to answer those questions - and more! Here's the low-down on our Freckle Summer Summit, and what to expect:

Who's going to be there?

This event is perfect for all teachers, coaches, principals, and district admins across the country who are passionate about making differentiation a reality in their schools & districts. 

What will we be doing during the 2-day Summit?

We're planning the Summit activities to be a perfect blend of both learning AND fun. After all, it IS during your summer vacation:

On Friday July 13th, you'll participate in hands-on Freckle trainings (led by Freckle team members, including our CEO, Sidharth!). All sessions will be tailored to your specific needs & interests. There will also be separate sessions designed specifically for principals/district admins.

On Saturday July 14th, you'll get a chance to explore our lovely city of San Francisco in guided small-group outings! You'll be able to choose from a variety of options, such as walking Golden Gate Bridge, visiting the seals at Pier 39, and more.

The best part? Your families are invited to join us for the Saturday activities (yes, for free - included in your Summit ticket).

You can see a more detailed agenda here (we'll be updating that page as we get closer to the event).

What's included in my Summer Summit ticket?

  • All-day Freckle trainings on Friday, July 13th
  • Breakfast & lunch during trainings on Friday, July 13th
  • Saturday breakfast
  • Saturday's small-group outings to explore San Francisco (your families are invited to join at no additional cost)
  • Freckle Summer Summit t-shirt & other assorted swag!

That sounds great! How much are tickets?

  • If you buy before May 16th, your ticket will only be $95!
  • If you buy after May 16th, tickets are $185.
  • You can register here:

Hotels in San Francisco look expensive. Are there any affordable options!?

Yes! I'm so glad you asked. Freckle is partnering with The Park Central Hotel to offer Freckle educators a special rate of $189/night. This rate is valid July 12-14th, and is exclusively available to Summit attendees and their families. The Park Central is centrally located in downtown San Francisco, within walking distance to attractions like Union Square & the Ferry Building.

You'll need to book at this link to get the discounted rate. A limited number of rooms are available, first come first serve!

Is this event open to educators from out of state?

Absolutely! So far we have educators from over 15 states attending the Freckle Summer Summit, from as far as Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Illinois, Kansas, and more. We're so excited to be gathering the country's thought leaders in differentiation in San Francisco for the Summit!

I'm thinking of coming with a group of educators. Can we get discounted group pricing?

You sure can! We are offering large discounts for group orders. Just email with the size of your group, and we'll provide a custom ticket package for you.

I have more questions. Who should I contact?

You can email our Summit Director, Michelle at She's happy to help out, and is looking forward to hearing from you!

OK, I'm sold. I want to buy my Summit ticket - where can I do that?
