Utilizing the facilities at Taft's nearby home course, this program is designed for the competitive golfer pursuing a high school or collegiate level program. All instructors are PGA certified. Enrollment is limited to 10 students per two-week session, and participation requires enrollment in one of the Summer School's academic programs.
At Summer School, we believe strongly that students should have CHOICES. Our individualized academic program enables students to further their academic progress by choosing a course of study that suits their personal needs and interests. The Summer School offers dynamic faculty, a beautiful 226-acre campus, modern facilities, a 4:1 student-to-faculty ratio, and an average class size of 10 students. The Golf program is an add-on to the Taft Summer School's other programs for students entering grades 7-12, and students who elect to participate in the Golf program will need to participate in the Young Scholars, Liberal Studies, Writer's Lab, Young Writer's Enrichment Institute, or a part-time test prep (SAT or SSAT) program. The Golf program offers a 5:1 student-to-teacher ratio and accepts a maximum of 10 eligible students per session. Participants must be able to provide a USGA-certified handicap index of 16.5 for boys and 23.2 for girls.
