Summer at Hopkins is a unique experience of learning, discovery and fun. Situated in the Westville section of New Haven on the School’s 108-acre campus, the Hopkins program offers students a wide array of academic and enrichment courses, skills-building athletic camps and chess for all ages and levels of play. The summer program is in session from June 26–August 4, 2017, with a daily schedule of 8 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Outstanding educators and coaches ensure a rewarding learning experience.

The Upper School Summer School program is for students in grades 9-12 and offers a selection of core academic and enrichment courses including Physics, Literary Skills and Analysis, Introduction to Computer Programming and Comprehensive ACT and SAT Review. The academic credit courses provide 90+ hours of teaching in a given subject area and require an equivalent amount of out-of-class study time. Non-credit academic review courses provide between 30 and 60 hours of class-based learning. Classes are small, typically averaging between 10 and 14 students.

The Middle School Program is for students in grades 7-8 and offers academic and enrichment courses for students seeking to expand their horizons or strengthen core learning skills. Examples of courses offered include Expository and Creative Writing, Pre-Algebra, Introduction to Computer Programming, Phone-Cam Film School and Web Design.

The Lower School Program is an age-appropriate, six-week learning and enrichment program for elementary school students who will be entering grades 3 through 6 in the fall. Teachers are selected for their command of core educational disciplines at this level (reading, writing, mathematics, and science); their ability to work easily and effectively with younger students; and, perhaps most importantly, their desire to ensure that the learning experience is both stimulating and fun. Classes are typically 10 to 12 students on average.

The summer sports program at Hopkins includes squash, at all levels, basketball, football, soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, fencing and hockey. For more detailed information on Summer at Hopkins, click on the links below to download the catalog and to apply on line.
