Summer Term 2016

Zion canyoneeringWaterford Summer Term is a refreshing change from the regular school year’s learning milieu. Academic courses provide students with the opportunity to focus deeply in a specific, narrowed discipline, where they learn to think creatively, solve problems, write well, engage with ideas and experience places and opportunities that prepare them for meaningful life in a complex and rapidly evolving world. Athletics, arts and travel round out a rich curriculum designed to be a life-changing highlight in a student’s educational career.

Courses on Campus

Summer Term on campus has had an auspicious beginning. Courses in rowing, sewing, dance, Harry Potter cooking, computer programming, stop motion animation, beading, Dr. Seuss, and books and cooks are now complete. Also, off campus, we have students in China, Africa, Northern Europe and Spain with an excursion to Iceland in the wings.

Several courses have not yet begun and, in many of them, there is space available. To apply for enrollment, please use the REGISTRATION FORM.
