Rising Scholars Summer Session

Virtual programming for students entering grades 7–9 in fall 2021

Experienced and supportive teachers. Small classes. Opportunities to gain confidence and knowledge. This Summer Session program will help you hone your academic skills in courses that most middle schools don’t offer and in small groups where you’ll get individual attention from expert teachers. 

The details:

  • All programming is virtual.
  • Six-week session: June 28–Aug. 6
  • Three-week sessions: June 28–July 16 OR July 19–Aug. 6
  • Classes meet Monday through Friday. 
  • Classes meet at either 8:30 am or 10:15 am ET.
  • Choose one or two half-morning major courses. Alternatively, you may choose one full-morning math credit course (Algebra I, Geometry, or Algebra II) which meets for three, one-hour sessions (9 am, 10:30 am and 12:30 pm) each day Monday through Friday.
  • Math courses are six weeks long and frequently satisfy full-year requirements at other schools.
