Summer Programs

June 29 - July 25, 2014

For four weeks each summer, students attending Randolph-Macon Academy Summer Programs develop their interests and talents, challenge themselves to improve on weaknesses, and literally take to the skies. Close friendships are formed and last forever, memories are made, and lives are changed.

It is a summer like no other.

Summer programs at R-MA offer a variety of fun as well as academic enrichment.

R-MA offers four distinct summer programs: 

Middle School Academic Camp

FUN! Students entering grades 6-8 in the fall expand their academic knowledge while having fun! Mornings are spent in classes, while afternoons, evenings, and weekends are reserved for building friendships and having more fun! Field trips are taken throughout the session. Did we mention we have tons of fun?

Upper School Summer Courses

Want to explore a little this summer? Check out one of our summer enrichment courses: Design Concepts for Engineering, Programming Fundamentals/JAVA, Personal Finance, Public Speaking, and Creative Writing Workshop. Or take a core course such as Geometry, Spanish I, or English 10!

Do you need to repeat a class? We have 17 classes to choose from!

These summer school courses are for students entering grades 9-12, or seniors who need to take a class to graduate.
