- In addition to the locations above, A+ Summer Middle School is available on the campus of Yale University.
A+ Summer Middle School immerses rising 6th, 7th and 8th grade students in an environment that encourages advanced thinking, creative problem solving, and a lifelong love of learning. For seven days, students will explore their potential as inventors, detectives, and strategists. Interdisciplinary classes will strengthen students’ talents in reading, writing, math, and science, while pushing them to employ these skills in new and imaginative ways.
Every morning students will participate in a tournament of minds to get them warmed up for the day. They will complete brain benders, physical challenges, and trust exercises that will require students to demonstrate critical thinking and teamwork.
Students spend the rest of their day in a major track. A+ Middle School attendees will select one of two tracks: Future Studies or Mystery Summer.
A+ Middle School is designed for students who are already excelling in school. While there is no minimum GPA requirement for the program, students who are already achieving a 3.0 GPA (or equivalent) will be best prepared for success in the A+ program.
