We offer a 5-week Academic Enrichment Program for high school and middle school students, as well as 4-, 2-, and 1-week signature programs. From writing and theater arts to athletics and study abroad, we have a program for everyone.
An innovative curriculum, gives students a variety of fresh options with which to build an exciting summer of learning. Existing courses are regularly updated and new offerings are created each year.
Structured independence means that, on a daily basis, students are in classes for five to six of the eight daily periods with one period set aside to work one-on-one with their teachers.
Class sizes are small, ranging from 4 to 14 students per class.
The experienced faculty includes the regular-year Choate faculty, augmented by excellent teachers from independent and public secondary schools, colleges, and universities.
When approved by a student's home school, course credit may be received for summer work.
With over $450,000 available for need-based aid, we are able to offer this unique education experience to students who would not otherwise be able to attend.
Global friendships are made each summer between the approximately 650 students representing more than 38 countries and 28 states.
Our campus is in an ideal location, midway between Boston and New York, in a small New England town. Nearby beaches, historic sites, and college campuses are all available for weekend trips.
We have a record of academic success! Ranked among the best in private schools and rivaling those at colleges and universities, our superb facilities include air-conditioned classrooms, library, dining hall, computer centers as well as world-class athletic and student activities facilities.
