School mission: prepare each student for academic success in the next school year. The school vision is a season for success: elevated scholastic enthusiasm, efficiency and purposeful momentum into the next school year.

A Wolfeboro summer does not look like school or feel like school as usual.
The program, faculty and staff blend to promote wholesome outdoor play with an emphasis on non-digital friendships and productivity. Healthy social interaction is unavoidable; academic accountability ensured.

Students take courses for credit, review, or preview in literature; writing; vocabulary; reading; mathematics; SAT Prep; science; history; ESL; languages and studio arts. A class size of 4-6 students ensures a front row seat, connection with a veteran teacher and productivity. School offerings include athletic and recreational activities.
