At Belmont Hill Summer School, students from grades 6-12 can explore new subjects, hone skills, and gain valuable academic experience from expert faculty. Whether it is a six-week credit course or a three-week academic workshop, our curriculum is designed to position students for success in their upcoming school year.
With diverse course offerings and flexible scheduling, parents can design an academic schedule perfect for their student’s goals and needs.
Our three-week workshops are designed to allow students to work within specific areas in a concentrated session. The workshops give students the chance to improve skills and prepare for the coming academic year. Each workshop is open to students in middle school and high school. All workshops are offered on a Pass/Fail basis. Grades and comments are emailed home at the end of each session.
Our credit classes are fast paced, cover a full year of a standard high school curriculum, and enable students to move ahead to a more advanced level. These classes meet three hours per day for the full six weeks. Grades are emailed home at midterm and at the end of the summer session.
Students who wish to take a course for credit should have prior approval from their high school before enrolling. Belmont Hill does not award academic credit, but will, upon request, send a transcript of your grades to your school.
Intensive classes serve as an introduction to a particular subject, helping students get a head start on classes they will take in the fall. They meet two hour per day for the full six weeks, covering most but not all topics of a particular subject. Grades are emailed home at the midterm and at the end of the summer session.
SAT TEST PREP
Belmont Hill Summer School offers comprehensive prep courses on both the English and Math portions of the SAT exam, taught by faculty with decades of SAT experience. Instruction includes guidance on question types and strategy, daily problem solving, and timed practice sessions. Throughout the three weeks, students will track their practice scores, giving them the opportunity to see their progress and the results of their hard work.
As part of Belmont Hill Summer School, in addition to the SAT Prep courses, students can take other classes in Math, English, Science, and the Arts.
