Summer Academy dates for 2020 will run from June 29 - Aug. 7. Our lower school classes will run July 6 - 31.

Summer Academy
Hamden Hall’s Summer Academy welcomes students from all schools to be part of our summer learning community! We offer a wide variety of courses that will enrich students of all ages.  

Students who attend Summer Academy will be taught by an outstanding and enthusiastic faculty. The course offerings range from enrichment classes, to introductory courses, to courses for credit.  We keep our class size small to enable students to get the personal attention they deserve.  

For students entering grades K-6 we offer our Adventures and Academics program as a full day option this year.


A Variety for Success

Summer Academy offers a variety of one to six week courses for students in grades PreK-12. 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. Course descriptions include times, dates, grade levels, and tuition cost per section. Course grade levels are for the grade that your child will be entering in the fall. For updates on course availability, or to discover new offerings which have been added to our catalog, please contact us at summeracademy@hamdenhall.org.

Adventures and Academics
For students entering grades K-6 we offer our Adventures and Academics program. Students enrolled in Adventure and Academics participate in a full day of activities starting with academic classes in the morning and adventures in the afternoon. Students engage in swimming at the Beckerman Athletic Center, craft projects, outdoor activities, and team building games during the afternoons. Other activities include exploring local museums and taking nature hikes at state parks.

Credit Classes
Any student who wishes to receive credit for a summer academy course should contact the summer academy office and request that a transcript be sent to his/her school. Please be aware that the decision to award credit is made by the school which the student attends during the regular school year. *Eligible Hamden Hall students may also take selected courses for credit. Successful completion of a credit course allows a Hamden Hall student to advance to the next level of the course in September. It does not reduce the number of courses to be taken that year.
* Departmental permission required prior to registration.

Summer Academy Tutoring Center

The tutoring center can arrange one-on-one and small group instruction in all academic areas to students from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Tutoring sessions are held at the Swain Library at Hamden Hall or the Beckerman Athletic Center. Scheduling can be done to accommodate vacation schedules and Hamden Hall campers. 

Please call Allison Ehrenreich at summeracademy@hamdenhall.org for more information.
