Engage. Explore. Excel. July 2 – 28, 2017

Have you ever wanted to give your student an opportunity to explore but you were not sure where to start? The Summer Program at Cheshire Academy encourages curiosity and excitement by giving students the opportunity to learn through discovery. Our time with your child will be spent encouraging self-discovery through inquiry-based hands-on programs. No matter what their passion, your child will have the opportunity to foster that passion and appreciate its connection with the real world.

This July, join students from around the world as they gather at Cheshire Academy for a comprehensive summer experience uniquely designed for those entering grades 7-12. As a member of the Summer Program you will have the opportunity to learn through discovery in hands-on and exploratory activities catered to your passions.

Conveniently located in Central New England, Cheshire Academy is within driving distance to both New York City and Boston, and is close to multiple international airports. Set in historic Cheshire, Connecticut, this 104-acre campus provides the ideal setting for academic enrichment and exciting extracurricular activities.
