Check back here regularly for suggestions for summer programs. To be clear, these are not mandatory, but they do provide students with the opportunity to get ahead and to prepare for the coming year. Wherever possible, we will include alumni or parent testimonials!
African Leadership Academy Global Scholars Program - This summer program is a unique and comprehensive opportunity for leaders from across the globe.
Boston University Academy of Media Production (AMP) - A new program to us, we have heard great things from others!
Boston University Summer Journalism Institute - This program is one that has received a ton of praise over the years by students who are vaguely interested in journalism as well as those committed souls who know they want to pursue journalism.
International ACAC Listing - This is not a summer program itself but rather a listing of such programs that seem particularly well-suited for students attending high school outside the US. This is the new 2020 listing!
Oxford Study Courses - This program is tailored for students pursuing the IB diploma who are looking to be well-prepared.
Summer Boarding Courses - This program offers a number of different summer options for students. The feedback from ISD parents is that this program was beneficial to friends' kids who were trying to get better prepared for their A-levels, so we imagine this would be a positive experience for our IB students as well!
TS College Tours - This is a well-established organization that arranges for college tours in various areas of the globe throughout the summer.
If you know of other programs we should recommend and/or have feedback on any, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
