Leap Summer Immersion

JULY 30-AUGUST 19, 2023 | GRADES: RISING 9TH-12TH GRADERS

Start your high school experience with confidence as you build the skills to balance life both inside and outside the classroom. 

Spend part of your summer learning, making life-long friends, and building the confidence, resilience, and knowledge to leap into your next school year. For a boarder, this program simulates the balance of boarding life and the academic experience to help you transition smoothly in the fall. With the primary focus on developing life skills to succeed in a boarding school, you will have a dedicated residence life staff to help you gain valuable skills to live in a dorm. Day students will experience a morning of academics and an afternoon of activities. As a day student, you are welcome to participate in evening and weekend activities for an additional fee.

 

DAY STUDENT TUITION: $2,300 
Day Weedkend Activity Fee: $700
BOARDING TUITION: $4,900

“Leap was a good transition for my son David. It helped him transition to a new state, establish new friendships, and get acclimated to a boarding school environment in a smaller, more comfortable setting.” - Lina, Parent ‘22, Connecticut

We are dedicated to providing each student with the executive functioning tools, metacognitive skills and academic strategies to prepare your student for a successful transition into boarding school. We are committed to creating a safe, kind and caring environment where students will be celebrated for who they are, while learning to value the differences of others. The Leap program will instill a sense of confidence and autonomy that will set your student up for success as they experience boarding school for the first time.
