Growth, learning and fun don’t stop over the summer at MICDS. Named after school founder and visionary thinker William Greenleaf Eliot, Eliot Summer Academy challenges middle and high school students with an array of opportunities. Students have the opportunity to perform cutting-edge scientific research, create in the Maker Lab, craft their college essay and so much more! Enrichment and for-credit courses are available.

Classes offered through Eliot Summer Academy are designed to be review, enrichment or replacement oriented. Review courses help students transition between coursework levels, allow them to redo work, catch up or make up a course. Enrichment courses offer something new and may help students prepare for the next school year. Replacement courses are offered for MICDS credit and help students open up their schedule for other options or electives during the academic year.

* Courses marked with a (C) are for-credit courses.
