Summer Sports

After considerable thought, review, and assessment, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 on-campus 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.  

We will be offering a virtual summer school experience for core classes and credit recovery. 

    • Logistics
      • Online summer school classes will begin on June 29.
      • Courses are self-paced, if a student needs to register after June 29 they can still complete courses for credit.
      • The planned end date is July 31
    • Courses 
        • English 9, 10, and 11 
        • Algebra I and II 
        • Geometry 
        • World History 
        • U.S. History 
    • Pricing
        • $500 per course ($300 for second course if enrolled together)

We understand that summer programs are often a way for families to “test-drive” a new learning environment.

Hargrave affords young men the opportunity to participate in athletics on a daily basis. We offer the following selections, available in two-week sessions. If a young man wishes to participate in the same offering for all four weeks, he may do so.

Basketball

Develop your skills in historic Walter Davis Gymnasium! Whether you’re coming in as a highly recruited athlete or someone playing the sport for the first time, the coaches will help you improve! Led by members of the staff of both the Post-Graduate and Varsity staff, you are sure to come away with a marked improvement! Activities will range from basic conditioning and skill work to team and individual competitions by the end of the session.

Football

Take to the gridiron this summer and get ready for the upcoming football season! Participants will take part in individual skill and conditioning drills on the field, with weight room sessions sprinkled in as well. No matter what your position is, our coaching staff will help you improve your craft each day, as well as branching out to experience other positions during the session.

Swimming

Take advantage of the gorgeous Onishi-Davenport pool on a daily basis and work on your skills! Work on your strokes, practice your diving skills, or even learn how to swim! This selection will afford you the opportunity to work with a coach directly to move towards your individual goals — no matter what they are! Friendly timed competitions and free-time activities like pool basketball and water polo are sprinkled into the offerings during the session.

Soccer

Participants will work on both individual skill and team-building exercises over the course of the program. With guest speakers and video study sprinkled in, there’s no doubt that each young man will walk away with an improved skill set and perspective on the sport! Individual ball-handling, shooting, goal-keeping, defending tactics, and soccer conditioning are all part of the program.

Fitness

Our fitness option will focus on both individual fitness and enjoying some different sports. Participants will have scaffolded workouts in the newly renovated weight room on a daily basis. Wednesdays will be a pool workout (shallow end) day. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, they will use the second half of athletics time to participate in different athletic activities. Track & Field, Flag Football, Basketball, and Tennis are among the activities they will participate in!
