History of the Summer School

Established in 1982 by H. William (Rusty) Davis, the Taft Summer School continues to offer 150 motivated students from around the world the opportunity for intensive study in a residential, independent school environment. Guided by energetic, experienced teachers, students will encounter an academic environment that's as exciting as it is challenging. Arts and athletics, as well as a varied schedule of weekend trips and activities round out the experience.

With an average class size of 10 students and a faculty/student ratio of 4:1 faculty members are able to work closely with students.
