Academic Programs

The 5-week Loomis Chaffee Summer Program is divided into two different programs based on grade level.

  • The Upper School Program is for students entering grades 10-12.
  • The Middle School Program is for students entering grades 7-9.

Whether you are in the Upper School or Middle School Program, your individually designed course schedule will include the selection of one major course, one writing course, and one minor course.

The major courses and writing courses will require additional study time outside of the classroom while most course work for the minor courses will be performed in class.

The CORNERSTONE of the Loomis Chaffee Summer Program is its emphasis on writing. The process of writing, committing ideas (whether factual or fictional) to words, we believe is both integral and invaluable to the education of every child—even those who may go on to careers in mathematics or science.

Writing, like any skill, requires hours and hours of practice, knowledge of the fundamental techniques and rules, good instruction, and then some more practice. All of which our students will get at the Loomis Chaffee Summer Program.

In addition to our 5-week program, we now offer one- and two-week workshops designed to meet the needs of those students who cannot commit to the longer, five-week program.


Upper School Program

For students entering grades 10 – 12










The Upper School program is designed for students eager for an intellectual challenge. As a student at the LC Summer Program, you will create your own course schedule by selecting one class from our Writing program, one class from our Major Course offerings, and one from numerous Minor Course offerings. Whether you want to grow stronger in a subject matter that you are already familiar with or branch out and try something new, we hope you take the opportunity to experience the joys of learning with us. Our highly motivated faculty members are experts in their respective fields and are ready to help you thrive.


Middle School Program

For students entering grades 7 – 9










This program is designed to further prepare middle school students for the academic rigors of high school and beyond. Through your thoughtfully designed curriculum, you will actively participate and engage in classroom settings that foster individual thought, confidence, and the desire to learn. Course offerings include options from the Writing program and general studies as well as stimulating learning opportunities that encourage the exploration of new interests and talents.



Immersion Geometry

An intensive geometry course designed to cover a full academic year’s course load, Immersion Geometry is offered for academic credit and is for students committed to completing their Geometry course requirements in order to accelerate. Algebra I is a prerequisite.

If you choose this course, you will attend class for the full academic day and therefore cannot select any other major or minor courses. You will have the opportunity to participate in the daily athletic activities and social events.


Calculus "A"

June 29–July 17 (Three-week course for credit)

Students who desire to advance themselves to Calculus BC, but have not had the first part of Calculus (Calculus A) either in Precalculus/Calculus or in Calculus AB can take this course and potentially receive credit, pending their performance in the class  [for Cal A]. Students will meet for two 75-minute blocks in the morning, with a 40-minute break in between, followed by an hour lunch break. They will also meet in the afternoon for 2+ hours. Designed for talented and committed math students, this Calculus A course will move at a swift pace and will cover all of the Calculus material in three weeks.

Those enrolled in the three-week program will have an opportunity to integrate with the five-week students by participating in the afternoon recreational sports and in the weekend activities.

1- and 2-Week Workshops

These one- and two-week workshops are designed to meet the needs of those students who cannot commit to the longer, five-week program.  Those who opt for one of these shorter/truncated programs can (and should) certainly expect a rigorous and stimulating exposure to the material on a daily basis.

Workshop Offerings

Princteon Review SSAT/SAT Prep

In conjunction with the Princeton Review, the Loomis Chaffee Summer Program offers SSAT and SAT prep courses. The Princeton Review’s teaching philosophy involves the application of unique problem-solving approaches, process of elimination, and pacing plans to set and meet incremental goals for score and improvements. By the completion of the course, students will have a comprehensive understanding of what to expect on test day in order to handle effectively each question and reach their target scores. Each program includes instructional sessions as well as two full-length practice exams.
