From academics to test prep to a unique golf program, Taft Summer School is all about offering you choices.
Students entering grades 7 to 9 may participate in the Young Scholars program, focused on building essential academic knowledge, increasing student independence and self-confidence, and improving students' time management skills.
If you are entering grades 10 through 12, consider joining our Liberal Studies program, ideal for young men and women who are interested in studying a variety of liberal arts courses in an independent school environment.
As the college and private school application process is becoming increasingly competitive, the Summer School is pleased to offer a 5-week test preparation program for local day students.
Utilizing the facilities at the nearby Watertown Golf Club (Taft's home course), this program is designed for the competitive golfer pursuing a high school or collegiate level program.
Favorite memory: “Helping my roommate, who was from Turkey, write her speech for Public Speaking. I really enjoyed helping her because we had a good time writing and really bonded over the experience.”
