Summer Institute at St. Joseph's College for Middle and High Schoolers!


Summer Institute at St. Joseph’s College (SI@SJC) is a summer academic day program for students from across NYC. Our convenient Brooklyn campus is beautiful, safe and is a wonderful place to learn. We accept students who are currently in grades 4, 5, 6, and 7 in our Middle School Summer Institute and students who are currently in Grades 8, 9, 10 and 11 in our High School Summer Institute.
Please note: for students currently in 4th grade, please be sure your child will be able to handle the workload. We don’t want to extend our program past the reach of any individual student. It may be that Creative Writing could be too challenging for the younger student. But that same younger student could excel in creative arts, or veterinary science, for example. Our goal is that the children have fun, and make friends, and learn… but not at the expense of being in a course that is too difficult, or too challenging, which would ruin the experience. If there are any questions regarding age and ability, we suggest calling our office to discuss your child and their particular skills and talents, to ensure placement in the correct class.
At SI@SJC our goal is to provide each student with one of the most enriching academic and social experiences of their life during their stay on our beautiful Brooklyn campus.
Our programs are designed to foster personal development through academic study and shared experience. During each one-week session, students choose one class on which to focus. We offer a broad array of courses that are unmatched in the metro area. Each student will have a unique opportunity to depart the program with a deeper understanding of themselves, their subject and the world. Plus they will have made an array of new friends!
During the day, students spend morning and afternoon sessions in their chosen classes. All of our classes are hands-on, interactive, and project based. Class sizes are small and feature talented and experienced faculty.


The campus is located on Clinton Avenue, between Willoughby and DeKalb Avenues, Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Students can arrive via car, or via train to the Clinton-Washington stop on the G train.
The campus is safe, clean, beautiful and well-maintained. Dedicated security officers at the front door provide for student safety by being part of the check-in and check-out process.
