Discover the Upper School Summer Program at Our Prep School
The Upper School program at R-MA this summer gives students grades 9-12 a chance to earn high school credits upon course completion. Giving students a chance to boost their grades, we offer courses in English, Math, Science, History, and World Language as repeat courses. This way, students get one full credit for the course while achieving a grade improvement.
Additional Math, Science, History, and World Language courses are offered as new courses for original credits at our prep school. Students can expand their course experience with a variety of topics that are specifically tailored to cover topics during a shorter span of time. Some options include Geometry, Drone Applications, World Religions, Flight Training, and Computer Science, and more. The summer course list can be found here.
With weekdays filled with exciting course participation and on-campus activities, and weekends packed with off-campus trips and memorable experiences, students live out their best summers at R-MA.
Middle School Summer Enrichment Opportunities
Middle School students from grades 6-8 also have a chance to participate in our exciting summer programs, full of enrichment opportunities geared towards enhancing their academic careers throughout middle and high school. A myriad of subjects are available, all designed to gauge intellectual curiosity and development.
Whether a student chooses Creative Writing, Robotics, History, Study Skills, Music, ESL, or another enriching course, they will thrive in our supportive summer environment. Renovated dorms separated by age groups and genders help students feel comfortable and at-home over the course of their programs. Students make lasting friendships through administered activities such as scavenger hunts, paintball sessions, outdoor and indoor movie viewings, game nights, campfires with s’mores, as well as free-time to relax and enjoy.
One of Our Most Popular Programs: Aviation Explorers
We are thrilled to present the details of one of the most popular programs offered during the summer at our boarding school. The Aviation Explorers program, open to Upper School students and rising grade 9 students, includes classroom instruction for Flight Training and Drone Applications.
Both of these courses provide exciting and in-depth hands-on training that often leads to a gateway to new career industries, whether students want to work in the US or abroad. This unique program gives students actual flight time on two school-owned Cessna aircraft and state-of-the-art drones throughout each section of the course. And with the opportunity to complete the FAA remote pilot (drone) certification, students feel a rewarding sense of accomplishment with all of their hard summer work.
