After considerable thought, review, and assessment, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 summer programs. We have taken careful consideration of the Virginia Governor’s phased approach and its impact on our summer programs. Knowing that we would have students from across the United States, many of them from some of the most heavily affected areas, we believe there is a significant risk to cadets should a COVID case present itself during our summer program.
Without the ability to conduct testing and assure families of their sons’ safety, we feel it would be irresponsible to conduct a Summer School program on campus. We will be offering a virtual summer school experience for core classes and credit recovery.
We understand that summer programs are often a way for families to “test-drive” a new learning environment. If you’re considering a new school for your son, please contact our Admissions team by clicking the Inquire Now button below or call our Admissions Office at 1 (800) 432-2480.
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 and activities like Leadership Challenge or High Adventure in the afternoon. Our daily schedule is below.
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 as well as outdoor challenges for all students. The Academy’s structure provides the backbone for each day, keeping students on task, on target and engaged.
