In this extended year program (ESY), students are grouped into small classes by ability and age with respect to grade.

It's fast-paced and engaging.

Once your application is complete, you will hear from one of the directors of the Summer Program to schedule a campus visit. During the campus visit, children applying for the five-week program will be administered a brief reading and math assessment.

After the visit, the admissions committee meets to throughly assess the potential fit between student and program. Decision letters are sent within two weeks. Please note participation in the Summer Programs does not guarantee placement in the academic year and is a separate process.
