"This is a great opportunity to get on campus, work on your English and adjust to boarding school life before your grades begin to count toward your college transcript."

The Christchurch School Summer ESL Program is for international students planning to attend a US boarding school in the fall, seeking to have an American Culture and English Immersion experience. This four-week immersion program includes classroom and experiential learning. Students spend one or two sessions daily in classes and additional time exploring local areas
of interest and participating in typical American pasttimes and activities with American campers.

Students will visit local colleges and learn more about the college admission process. You will prepare for the social and academic aspects of an American boarding school. 
At the end of the program, Christchurch School students will remain on campus to participate in our fall preseason. Students attending other schools will proceed on to their schools or participate in an additional, short travel/tourism program (additional fees applied) until the start date of those schools.
