Upper School Summer Institute (NEW!)

Summer Institute

We're excited to introduce the Summer Institute, which offers Upper School students a variety of unique, weeklong academic enrichment experiences in support of specific skill development and student curiosity. Best of all, each weeklong institute is thoughtfully designed and taught by some of the most beloved Country Day teachers. Due to changing needs in the community, Country Day will no longer offer courses for academic credit in the summer time. Questions about the new Summer Institute can be addressed to Michael Rinehart, director of Summer Programs, or Jessica Flaxman, Upper School director of studies.
