The Rye Country Day Summer Session offers middle and upper school students the opportunity to develop areas of special interest, explore new ideas, earn advanced credit, or review subjects that need strengthening. 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. 

Courses meet for two- to six-week sessions, depending on the course. All courses will take place between June 29 – August 7, 2020. Dates and times for every course are noted in the course description. Please make note of the dates for the courses for which you are registering. 

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. 

Need Assistance?

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.

Financial Assistance
Students who attend RCDS during the school year and will receive financial aid for the 2020–2021 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.
