Summer Program at Forman

Make friends! Have fun! Learn how you learn best!

Forman School’s four-week summer program offers students entering grades 7 through 11 a taste of the Forman experience.

Work with highly trained teachers who understand learning differences – including dyslexia, dyscalculia, attention deficits and executive function challenges – and know how to leverage your strengths.

  • Feel the support of peers who can totally relate to you, because they learn differently too.
  • Get the feel of boarding school life – the flow, the friendships, the food, the fun!
  • Take advantage of a beautiful 125-acre campus.
  • Choose from dozens of art, athletic, and recreational activities that round out your academic life.

Summer at Forman equips students with life-changing academic skills and learning strategies that they can take with them wherever they go in the fall – whether that’s middle school, the start of high school, or the beginning of the college search. It’s the perfect way to prep for the new school year...and beyond.
