The Beekman School offers comprehensive summer school programs for high school students in NYC. Students choose to participate in these supplemental sessions for a variety of reasons. Their objectives for attending a high school summer program may be to repeat coursework, accelerate graduation, earn additional credits, or enrich their knowledge in a specific subject area. These programs share flexible enrollment options that include full and short-term sessions. High school students can complete Beekman courses by following our regular summer session schedule. They can also earn credit through customized programs and one-on-one tutoring available through The Tutoring School. The wide range of personalized opportunities that we provide makes The Beekman School a stand-out among New York City summer schools.
- Summer Session
Each year, The Beekman School runs a 24-day summer school program. For the school year ending in June 2017, summer classes will begin on Wednesday, July 5 and end on Tuesday, August 15. There are four two-hour classes each day, and all classes meet Monday through Thursday for the entire six weeks of the summer session. First period begins at 8:30 a.m., and the last period of the day ends at 5:45 p.m. Upon completion of 24 days of a two-hour course, students may earn a semester credit. The Beekman School offers all of the 9th, 10th and 11th grade core academic courses in English, history, math, and science.
- The Tutoring School
The Tutoring School also offers a summer session that follows the same dates and schedule as the larger Beekman School program. The difference between the two programs is that The Tutoring School can offer virtually any high school course at any level. Courses are also available for 8th grade students who wish to prepare for the coming 9th grade year. Year-long courses can be taken through The Tutoring School.
In addition, courses in The Tutoring School are capped, guaranteed not to exceed three students. The average class size is two. Sessions in organization and study skills; SAT, TOEFL and TASC* preparation; and basic math, reading and writing skills are also available.
*The TASC replces the GED in NYS.
For the school year ending in June 2017, our Mini-Session begins on Monday, June 12 and ends on Friday, June 30. During this time, students may finalize coursework from the previous year, complete a marking period of work in a specific course (usually a total of 24 class hours), or arrange for special instruction for a myriad of unique situations.
The Tutoring School can also customize the start and end dates of Mini-Session instruction to meet the scheduling needs of students and their families.
