Every summer, students from around the United States and the world come to Cushing Academy for five weeks to learn, make new friends and have fun. We offer programs with serious academic components: Prep for Success, for girls and boys ages 12-13; Studio Art, for girls and boys ages 13-18; College Prep, English as a Second Language, and Critical Skills all for girls and boys ages 14-18.
In the mornings, students attend classes in a core academic subject, just as in our Academic Year program, they benefit from personalized instruction in small classes with highly qualified faculty. In the afternoons, students may choose from a variety of activities, including arts and athletics.
Beyond the classroom, Cushing provides exciting trips throughout New England and the Northeast, myriad athletic opportunities and memorable special events. All students participate in campus activities and excursions and enjoy an outstanding summer with young people from across the country and around the world.
What’s the best kind of summer? One that’s both fun and intense, full of activities and friends, where you share countless experiences together—and where you also achieve far more than you thought you could.
Cushing Academy’s five-week Summer Session is this kind of summer. Students from across the country and all over the world come here in July to participate in one of our dynamic on-campus programs:
- Prep for Success (ages 12-13)
- Studio Art (ages 13-18)
- College Prep (ages 14-18)
- Critical Skills Across the Curriculum (ages 14-18)
- English as a Second Language (ages 14-18)
In just five weeks, you’ll make tremendous academic or artistic progress while also enjoying arts and athletic electives, organized excursions around the region, and amazing new friendships that will last a lifetime. It’s exciting, it’s exhilarating — and it’ll give you a competitive edge. When it’s over, you won’t believe how much you’ve done.
