Phillips Academy’s Summer Session Overview
Summer Session is an innovative five-week program, conducted on its picturesque campus just 21 miles north of Boston. More than 60 courses are offered, ranging from computer science to marine biology, from ethics and philosophy to economics. Summer Session students bring the world into the classroom by virtue of their enormous diversity of geographic origin, religion, ethnicity, and socioeconomic background. With strong academic records and a serious desire to spend the summer in a residential community, our students enjoy challenging themselves and one another through disciplined study.
Every summer Phillips Academy hires a number of visiting teachers to teach, coach, and house counsel in its summer program. A Summer Session faculty member’s experience is rigorous and thoroughly challenging, for Phillips Academy requires superior classroom performance of its teachers, TAs, house counselors, and students alike. The Summer Session is short, intense, and strongly academic.
