Summer Session is open to qualified students from any school. Students may sign up for as many or as few classes as they would like. Classes are designed for rising fifth graders through rising twelfth graders (including newly accepted students). Class size generally ranges from four to twelve students. Minimum enrollment for a course is four. If there are fewer than four students enrolled in a course, the course will be cancelled.
DATES: Courses meet for one- to six-week sessions, depending on the course. All courses meet everyday and take place between June 28 – August 6, 2021. 2021 course dates and details are outlined below.
LEARNING MODE: The School is prepared to hold Summer Session courses fully in-person with the option to learn fully remote depending on the family's choice. With evolving health and safety guidelines guiding our planning and decision making, we may pivot to fully remote, if needed. Families will select their preferred learning mode (fully in-person or fully-remote) at the time of registration.
POOL TESTING: If opting to attend Summer Session in-person, students are required to participate in weekly pool testing. There is an additional fee of $25 per week upon registration. If opting to learn fully remote, please make that selection at the time of registration to avoid the additional fee.
Director of Summer Session
If the goal for your child is to earn placement or credit through their summer work, the student should discuss these goals with the appropriate person at their school before registering. Further, if the school agrees to placement or credit as a result of the summer work with us, we ask that a letter of permission be secured and sent to the Director of Summer Session.
Students who attend RCDS during the school year and will receive financial aid for the 2021–2022 school year will have the same percentage of their grant applied to the cost of summer academic classes.
Students from other schools are welcome to apply for financial assistance. We strive to meet the documented needs of applicants as much as possible. Applicants for financial assistance will be notified of the decision regarding assistance in mid-June.
