Summary: WHY settle for an ordinary summer ... insist on an extraordinary summer! The Loomis Chaffee Summer Program is divided into an upper school program for students entering grades 10-12 and a middle school program for students entering grades 7-9. Your individually designed course schedule will include one major, one writing, and one minor course. A five-week immersion geometry course is also available for qualified students as are SSAT and SAT preparatory courses. Build a robot, learn Chinese, throw a pot, write a poem, conquer geometry, dance, play squash, make new friends —join the fun at the Loomis Chaffee Summer Program! Explore both familiar and new subjects in an atmosphere that inspires academic engagement,enrichment, and growth. You will learn alongside peers from around the world in small, experiential classrooms. Our talented and caring faculty—experts in their respective disciplines—offer a broad curriculum that includes writing, science, robotics, visual arts, history, mathematics, and languages. Outside of the classrooms, you will participate in daily recreational activities and enjoy weekend excursions to nearby destinations including Boston, New York City, Mystic Seaport, and the Rhode Island Shore. New ideas, new skills, new places, new passions, and new friends await you.
