Summer School

Summer School at Lab is guided by the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools mission, and enrollment is open to all students. The continuing challenge to which our distinguished faculty members rise each and every summer is to keep their material fresh, relevant, and truly engaging for their students. Their ability to do so is one key element—among many—that sets Summer School at Lab apart. It is where a lifelong love of learning spends the summer!

Summer School classes meet mornings, afternoons, and full day. Some run for six weeks, others for three weeks only. Please check meeting times and dates in each listing, and feel free to contact the Summer School office with questions about structuring your student's day.
