Fairfield Prep offers incoming freshmen the option of taking courses in our Summer Program. Courses offered are:
- iPad Basic Skills
- Reading & Study Skills
- Effective Writing
The iPad Basic Skills course fulfills the academic requirement for freshman year. Thus, students who successfully complete will have a free period during the school year, which they may utilize to complete homework or study for a test.
Although Reading & Study Skills, Effective Writing and Mathematics do not fulfill course requirements, they are nevertheless popular courses as they help students adjust to the academic challenges and demands they will face in the fall as new freshmen.
Students in the Summer Program also enjoy the added benefit of getting to know both their new school and their fellow Prepsters in a more relaxed setting.
The Summer Program runs for four weeks, usually the last week in June and first three weeks of July. Families of students contemplating the Summer Program should check the schedule as soon as it is published and make vacation plans accordingly.
