Waterford Summer Term offers students opportunities to broaden their skills and experience in the world through participation in courses offered on campus, in country and abroad. Academic courses focus on topics that are difficult to cover with equal depth in the bustle of the school year. Sports camps help improve students’ overall fitness and prepare them for a successful season. Travel abroad gives students a unique opportunity to practice a language, see history in context, participate in musical performances in international venues or have a once-in-a-lifetime outdoor experience. Humanitarian service is also an important focus of Summer Term.

Make next summer memorable by participating in a Summer Term course, camp, or travel opportunity!
