Camp Psych - Campers will get hands-on experiences that introduce them to research in psychology during this fun, challenging, and engaging introduction to the field.

Sunderman Piano Institute - Pianists 12-17 years old who desire to improve their performance skills, collaborate with other pianists, and dive deeply into related music subjects of their choice. Pianists will have opportunities to perform in daily studio class, and the final Friday concert will showcase pianists in both solo and ensemble works

Writing Camp - Students gain an in-depth introduction to all four genres of creative writing: fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and writing for stage and screen

Coding for Robotics & Electronics Camp - Students will gain hands-on experiences in coding, wiring, hardware, and building robots through the open source software known as Arduino. Throughout this camp, campers will learn basic electrical engineering, the physics behind electricity, and how to think like a scientist.

Advanced Coursework Network through New English Institute of Technology

In the Fall of 2016, Rhode Island secondary schools will have the opportunity to expand the advanced level coursework available to their high school and middle school students through a new initiative, the Advanced Coursework Network (ACN).

The Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) will be supporting the costs of the coursework for eligible public high school students. As such, Local Education Agencies (LEAs), public schools, public school students and their families from eligible schools in Rhode Island will not be assessed any tuition or fees associated with participating in ACN courses. Students from outside of the state may be eligible to take the courses at cost, depending on availability.
