Summer Courses

Inside a Summer Session classroom

Summer Session provides a wide range of courses in math, science, writing, reading, English as a second language, foreign languages, visual arts, and performing arts.

Our five 40 minute daily class periods permit students to create unique personalized programs. Small class sizes, differentiated instruction, and a holistic approach allow our teachers to get to know each student and support his/her individual growth. We also encourage parents and schools to provide us with any student-specific goals we can address over the summer.
