From academics to test prep to a unique golf program, Taft Summer School is all about offering you choices.
Students entering grades 7 and 8 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 9 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.”
