2020 Summer Program Updates: After careful consideration, we have made the difficult, but necessary, decision to cancel all summer programs for the 2020 summer season. The health and safety of our participants and staff remains our top priority. Considering the high level of uncertainty still in place coupled with the many factors involved in providing a residential experience on a college campus, we believe it to be in the best interest of families not to proceed with hosting these programs this year. All enrolled families have been notified by email and will be receiving a full refund of payments made thus far. This email will also include details about how this cancellation will impact enrollment options for summer 2021.
