Join us for the St. David's Summer Academy! Full-credit, six-week courses are available to advance your science or math studies.

The Summer Academy welcomes students from across the Triangle region to join our excellent teachers on campus in June and July. Summer Academy courses meet for six-weeks, from 8:00 a.m. to noon. They bear the full credit (3 St. David's trimester credits) of a year-long course during the school year and will be graded.  There will be some limited homework in preparation for each day.
