- Camp will begin Friday, June 29, 2018, and end Saturday, July 21, 2018. We will be on Colgate University's campus in Hamilton, NY.
- We are happy to answer any and all questions prospective students or parents may have about our program. We can also connect prospective students to others who have attended the camp in previous years; our alumni are happy to answer questions and describe their experiences with the program.
How the Day Program Works
Most students who come to SSA live in the dormitories with their teachers. Students who live near Colgate, however, have the unique opportunity of engaging in the program as non-residential students for a significant reduction in tuition. Day students come as full-time students.
Full-time students come to SSA at 8:15 every morning and go home at 9:45 pm every night.
They participate in the full slate of academic and social programming: they attend class, take proctored tests, and compete in vocabulary and SAT games; beyond the SAT, they play sports with their peers, engage in games like capture the flag, quiz bowl, and debate, and select from a catalog of electives like Environmental Science and Philosophy.
Full-time students may elect to stay home for portions of the weekend, but will be required to attend proctored tests (which are on Saturdays) and test return/review sessions and coaching meetings (on Sunday evenings). We do have numerous weekend activities (going to the movies, barbecues, parties, campfires) which we would love to have full-time students attend. Inquire separately about our day program fees, which include lunch and dinner and all relevant activities and classroom fees.
