CLARA H. JONES SUMMER INSTITUTE

Now Celebrating Our 11th Year!

The Clara H. Jones Summer Institute is a structured, six-week intensive program aimed at developing fine arts skills while also targeting reading, math and science proficiency. Our dates this year are June 23-August 1.

Students in rising grades 1st-9th spend mornings taking two classes in violin, piano, art, dance and chorus. Afternoons are devoted to academic instruction with a special emphasis on math & science. And every week, there’s a field trip. The Summer Institute is named in honor of acclaimed music teacher Clara H. Jones.
