Each weekday of the summer program will include a variety of academic and extracurricular activities in addition to free time for students to work on projects or enjoy new friendships. The days are quite full, but they are designed to ensure that students have fun both in and out of the classroom. Weekdays will be more structured with classes conducted in the mornings and afternoons. Students are required to attend all classes and 6 of 9 activity periods per week.


Because weekdays are so incredibly busy, we ask that parents refrain from visiting at that time.

Saturday:  Class will be held on Saturday morning from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm. There will be activities on Saturday afternoon and students will either attend the dance or a movie on Saturday night.


Sunday:  Brunch will be served from 10:30 am - 12:00 pm instead of a traditional breakfast and lunch.
