Summer@Taft's Young Scholars program is a 5-week, full-time on-campus boarding or day program designed for talented 7th and 8th graders who are interested in exploring the boarding school experience or taking on the challenges of rigorous public and private secondary schools.
At Summer@Taft, 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. Summer@Taft 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 Young Scholars program for motivated rising 7th and 8th grade students focuses on building essential skills, increasing independence and self-confidence, and improving time management as students look further down the road to the demands of a college preparatory program. Students choose two major and two minor courses, participate in daily athletics, and take part in a myriad of on- and off-campus trips and activities.
