Summer Academy

Welcome

Dear Prospective Student,

The Summer Academy at Suffield welcomes students from ages 12 to 18 from around the world. We hope you will join us for five memorable weeks (June 29 - August 1, 2014) where you will have the opportunity to meet new friends, enhance your study skills, and prepare for the next academic year. Each summer over 130 students from around the globe come to the Summer Academy at Suffield to experience life in our community—a life filled with exciting opportunities to learn both in and out of the classroom.

Students enroll in the Summer Academy to expand their skills, whether in the classroom, in the art studio, or on the playing fields. Being part of our community means being part of a hands-on learning experience. For five weeks you will have the opportunity to eat, live, learn, and laugh with a culturally diverse group of peers and faculty members.

Students have the opportunity to take a wide range of classes and participate in a great variety of activities. Our academic program focuses on enhancing study skills and also offers courses in math, science, music, art, English, and foreign languages.

We hope you'll explore the Summer Academy's webpage and learn about some of the programs that the Summer Academy offers. In addition to the academic programs, you will read about the faculty, weekend activities, boarding life, and school trips.
