How to Apply

Due to COVID-19, we are approaching Summer Link 2021 with a set of program modifications to ensure the health and safety of our students, counselors, and teachers. Because of the small size of the Summer Link cohort (16 to 20 students), we are planning to provide an in-person experience while also preparing contingency plans if we cannot do so safely. Applications open March 1 and will evaluated on a rolling basis throughout the spring. Summer Link will run from July 5 - 30, 2021.

In order to apply to Summer Link, students must be current 5th graders who will enter 6th grade in the 2021-22 school year. Applicants can apply to Summer Link starting on March 1, 2021. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

If families have questions about or need support with the application process, please contact the Application Manager, Karen Zaidberg.
