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.
