Summer Academy dates for 2019 will run from June 24 - Aug. 2.
Registration will open in late January. For examples of classes that will be offered, see below.
The Lower School at Hamden Hall is committed to educating the whole child, through classes taught by specialists in art, music, physical education, science, technology, and world languages. Informed by Hamden Hall's core values of excellence, support, participation, accountability, and respect, each course provides a safe, nurturing environment in which children can explore and create. Summer Academy offers a variety of one week courses for students in grades K-6. This allows each student the opportunity to schedule a variety of activities during the summer months and still have time to spend with their family on vacation. Each course runs from 9 AM -12 PM daily. Please choose only one course per week. Students should bring snacks/drinks for break time. Please register your child for the grade level they will be entering in September.
