Summer Academic Courses

Prepare for the new school year by taking academic courses and exploring new talents and interests.

Taught by King School's exceptional faculty, our small class size ensures that your child will receive the attention that King delivers year-round. 

Summer Institute's Middle and Upper School Program offers students (Grades 6-12) the opportunity to explore new subjects, or to advance in core academic or artistic subjects. Students who are serious about their academic and personal growth will find our intensive college preparatory courses the perfect way to excel this summer.

Students do not have to attend King School to participate in these programs. 

Students can earn academic credit or build their skills.

These courses are especially helpful for students transitioning from Elementary to Middle School and from Middle to High School. The courses, which range from one week to six weeks, are offered both on-campus and online in mathematics, art and design, performing arts, public speaking, computer sciences, global studies, study skills, and more. 

Classes will run approximately  June 10 - July 19.

"I took a Summer Institute class and it helped me get a head start on my course requirements and it also freed up a study hall for me, which really helped with homework and time management. I would advise every incoming Freshman to take Summer Institute courses because it prepares you for additional academic classes ."

"I absolutely recommend taking Summer Institute classes. Not only are they taught by amazing teachers who are experts in their field, but it allows for you to have a lot more flexibility in your schedule. I also think it is really nice to have familiar faces when school starts, especially if you are new."

"I took two different classes over two consecutive summers; Introduction to Global Studies and Topics in Global Studies. Both classes helped me get a jump start on my academics because they were both requirements for King's Global Distinction. Taking those courses helped me to better select my classes during the academic year and I felt more prepared."
