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 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 choose their academic program for the summer and participate in a great variety of activities. Our academic program focuses on the areas of the arts, leadership, math and science, the English language, and a general program where students can take a range of courses in math, science, music, art, English, and foreign languages.
Additionally, we are offering an online program for students to pursue a Suffield summer education from the comfort of their own home. Students can fulfill their academic goals while enjoying the advantages of our summer on-campus experience through virtual learning. Students will be provided with rigorous and engaging classes, a devoted support system and learning community, invaluable resources and relationships, and teachers who are passionate about their work and are dedicated to each and every student.
