Wolfeboro: The Summer Boarding School
Wolfeboro offers constructive scholastic work for girls and boys ages 11-18 in a healthy outdoor atmosphere, combined with summer recreation. The program emphasizes effective and efficient study skills, organization, motivation, confidence and self-esteem. The program is individualized to meet each student’s needs. Average class size is 4 to 5 students.
All courses may be taken for credit by special arrangement with the student's school. Students may make up failures, review or preview work in specific academic subjects, strengthen skills in English, grammar, writing, vocabulary, reading, mathematics, history, science, foreign language and ESL. All students take three academic courses. The School serves as a valuable transitional experience for students entering boarding school for the first time. Individual goals are established for each student prior to arrival and after discussions with parents, the student’s school, and a review of available standardized test scores, transcripts and teachers’ reports.
The School’s 128 acres include a quarter mile of shoreline on Rust Pond. The campus has a complete waterfront facility for swimming, sailing and canoeing, a five-acre playing field, tennis courts, volleyball court, basketball court and weights/training apparatus. A separate residential campus provides a special focus and program for middle school boys. School sponsored teams are organized by age groups and enjoy spirited intramural competition. Optional weekend trips are scheduled to fairs and events of special interest in Wolfeboro and vicinity, and include excursions to places such as the mountains, Maine seashore, water and amusement parks, movies, whale watches and Fenway Park.
