TASIS Summer Programs



TASIS Middle School Program (ages 11-13) and TASIS Summer Program (ages 14-18) balance academic subjects with intensive recreational and athletic activities. Students choose one course of study from a selection that comprises French, Italian, English as a Second Language, the performing and visual arts, and photography. Language instruction emphasizes spoken fluency and includes frequent practice time in the school's language lab. Courses in the performing and arts combine class work with off-campus enrichment trips. Regular homework assignments and compulsory evening study hall reinforce classroom learning. Younger children (ages 4-10) may enroll in Le Chateau des Enfants (see separate listing).
