SUFFIELD, Conn. – Suffield Academy will host its five-week Summer Academy on its campus from June 30 through Aug. 2. The Summer Academy, open to 130 boys and girls ages 12 through 18, has spaces available for both day students and boarding students. Application materials are available online. There are limited spaces available, and students are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

According to Suffield Academy Summer Programs Director Greg Lynch, the intensive program offers academic programs in mathematics, languages, computer science and sciences; workshops in leadership and study skills; a full array of athletics, arts, and recreational programs on the campus in Suffield; and weekend field trips to New York City, Boston, and Newport, R.I.

Suffield Academy has run a Summer Academy for 18 years.

"The Summer Academy has a large international clientele (usually representing over 15 countries), so regional students get an opportunity to meet fellow students from around the globe," Lynch said.

Lynch added, "Suffield's Summer Academy is not a 'remedial summer school' but rather an academic enrichment program offering students an opportunity to enhance their middle and high school experience. We're here to provide students with a challenging academic environment with top notch faculty to better prepare students for high school, independent schools, and college."
