Summer Program

Applications are closed for our 2023 summer session. Please visit our Admission page if you are considering enrolling in the fall or spring.

Our Summer Program is open to current students and students new to Hargrave. Many families use our Summer Program to try out life at boarding school. Students take classes in the morning, followed by sports or Leadership Challenge (weeks 3 & 4) in the afternoon. For the first time, all Summer Program students will gain access to our High Adventure program, with those activities taking place during the weekends instead of during sports time.

  • Saturday, June 24 – Saturday, July 22, 2023
  • All Boys
  • Grades 7–12
  • Boarding or Day

Our summer program has been one of the most popular in the southeast for years. Parents and students choose the Hargrave summer experience because Hargrave’s Summer Program is built on the same character-building standards as our academic year. We focus on academic growth and physical development for all students. The Academy’s structure provides the backbone for each day, keeping students on task, on target, and engaged.
