CLARA H. JONES SUMMER INSTITUTE

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. Operating dates are June 18-July 27, 2018.

NEW THEME EACH SUMMER. Students in rising grades 1st-9th spend mornings taking two classes. One class will be chorus and the other class will be a choice of violin, piano, drama, art or dance. 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.
