Join us for the St. David's Summer Academy! Full-credit, six-week courses are available to advance your math or science studies. Or, choose a three-week or one-week course and focus on skills for the upcoming school year and beyond.

The Summer Academy welcomes students from across the Triangle region to join our excellent teachers on campus in June and July. We are excited to offer a variety of courses this summer: 

  • six-week, full-credit courses that allow students to advance their math or science studies,
  • three-week courses providing a summer bridge for language learners, or 
  • one-week courses exploring math and English curricula.  

 Week-long and three-week courses will meet 9:00 a.m. to noon, or 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. There will be no grades or homework, and teachers will offer a narrative assessment of students' performance at the end of the course

Six-week courses, meeting 8:00 a.m. to noon, will 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.
