EA Summer Program

Summer programs offer children experiences like no other, helping them to develop self-confidence, pursue passions, explore new interests, assume leadership roles, and take risks. Elgin Academy is committed to providing students exceptional summer camp experiences. In response to the Covid-19 crisis we have made several changes to support children and families in this time of so much uncertainty.

  • Early Registration Discounts have been extended to May 31st.
  • Our refund and cancellation policies have been revised allowing parents more flexibility.
  • We have shifted our June Summer Programs to an online format.
  • E-Camps are offered for PS through 8th grades and our June J2 Term classes for 9th-12th grades are also online.
  • Online Academic Tutoring with EA faculty is available in a variety of subjects.
  • We are still planning to run our July programs on our beautiful campus but are ready to shift to E-Camps if required. 

We are looking forward to this unique summer and providing opportunities for students to engage and connect in a different way. Please feel free to contact Tanya Moore, Summer Program Director, with your questions.
