Suffield Academy has run a Summer Academy for 19 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 ‘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 experiences,” Lynch continued.

A brochure for the Suffield Academy Summer Academy and application materials are available online at www.suffieldacademy.org/summer.
