Summer Institute at St. Joseph’s College (SI @ SJC) is a summer academic day program for students from across New York City. Our convenient Brooklyn campus is beautiful, safe, and is a wonderful place to learn. We accept students who are currently in grades 5, 6, and 7 in our middle school Summer Institute and students who are currently in grades 8, 9, 10, and 11 in our high school Summer Institute.
At SI @ SJC, our goal is to provide each student with one of the most enriching academic and social experiences of their life during their stay on our beautiful Brooklyn campus.
Our programs are designed to foster personal development through academic study and shared experience. During each one-week session, students choose one class on which to focus. We offer a broad array of courses that are unmatched in the metro area. Each student will have a unique opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of themselves, their subject, and the world–not to mention a great group of new friends!
Our academic day is divided into two portions: majors and electives. At the time of registration, our students will choose their major. The major will be the class in which they study the most, and will absorb two to three of the four class periods per day. Electives, chosen on the first day of the program, are designed to be shorter, fun, whimsical introductions to interesting and different topics that many students will find fascinating.
During the day, students spend morning and afternoon sessions in their chosen major. All of our classes are hands-on, interactive, and project-based. Class sizes are small and feature talented and experienced faculty.
