Summer Program

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.
