Hunter College Campus Schools Summer Enrichment Program for the Gifted

Hunter College Campus Schools’ Summer Enrichment Program will run again for its 38th year in July, 2023! We accept students identified as gifted and talented who are entering grades 1-7 from the New York area, nationally, and internationally.
Tuition for the program is $2750, which includes a $100 non-refundable application fee. Registration is only available online and begins February 13th and closes on May 26th. Admissions is on a first-come, first-serve basis. To apply, use the APPLY HERE button found below.  After applying and submitting the application fee, you will receive a confirmation of receipt.  The HCCS Summer Program will review applications on a rolling basis and we expect to notify all early registrants by Friday, April 21st, but will accept applications and enrollment through May 26th. 

We encourage you to submit your application as early as possible to increase your child’s chance of acceptance. Because class sizes are limited, we cannot guarantee placement into our program. As soon as a grade is filled, the application for that grade will close. As a reminder, applications will not be considered without payment of the application fee.
The program will be in session from Wednesday July 5th through Thursday July 27th. The program is only Monday through Thursday each week. Each school day lasts from 9:00 am to 2:25 pm. Students can arrive by 8 am and receive breakfast if they wish. Throughout the school day, students will be taught in three different classes. Each class will be taught by professional teachers in the following subjects: STEM, the arts (visual arts, performance art, and music), and English Language Arts. Students will also have regular break times, as well as lunch and recess each day. In order to provide a robust experience, we utilize space outside of the classroom, like our courtyard, central park, local museums and other places of interest. 
An Extended Day Athletic Training Program for 3rd through 7th grade, will be offered as an extended day option this summer! The extended day program for 1st and 2nd grade is Art, Music, and Movement. Each day students will engage in various activities and projects. These extended day programs will run from 2:30pm-4:30pm. Dismissal for this program will begin at 4:30pm and be no later than 4:45pm. The cost for this program is $525. You can indicate your interest in the extended day option upon initial application.
