Director's Greeting


A Journey of Discovery and Exploration

Our UPPER SCHOOL offers programs of study for high school students who have completed grades nine, ten, eleven or twelve. You may choose to sample several different disciplines, taking courses in such topics as web page design, conversational French, and observational Astronomy.

ACCESS EXETER, our program for students who have completed grades seven or eight, offers accelerated study in the arts and sciences. The ACCESS EXETER curriculum consists of six academic clusters. Each cluster consists of three courses organized around a central theme.

Summer School grants students great freedom in defining their own programs of study. You will work with highly experienced, dedicated teachers and have access to the full range of the Academy campus, including the Phelps Science Center (a state-of-the-art facility with 24 air-conditioned laboratory/classrooms), the Fisher Theater, the Forrestal-Bowld Music Center, Love Gymnasium (a complex of swimming pools, fitness centers, and basketball and squash courts) and The Class of 1945 Library (the largest secondary school library in the world).

If you are interested in five weeks of challenging study, five weeks of music, theater, art and athletics, five weeks of fun and friendships, then consider Exeter's Summer School. I look forward to welcoming you as an Exonian to Summer School.
