Buckley's Upper School Summer School provides the opportunity for students entering grades nine through twelve to enroll in a class that is equivalent to a full year of mathematics, science, or Intersections of Identity. These classes satisfy the school's graduation requirements and allow students to schedule classes with greater flexibility during the school year.  Please note that our summer classes are very demanding, given that a school year’s worth of material is covered in only 6 weeks, 3 weeks for Intersections of Identity.
 
Registration
Registration will be open on Friday, February 4, at 5:30 p.m. and will close on March 15. Please click on the “Register Now” links on the Upper School Summer School homepage.  If you experience technical difficulties with the registration process, please email summersupport@buckley.org.

Note: All classes are subject to minimum enrollment requirements.

  • Physics Honors (Grade 11 Requirement)

    In this course, the rules that govern the physical world are explained through the use of practical examples, analogies, hands-on experiences, and mathematical principles. Topics covered include motion, gravitation, momentum, energy, electricity and magnetism, and sound and light. This course is not intended as a preparatory course for Advanced Placement Physics C.

    This course satisfies The Buckley School's physics requirement.

    Enrollment priority will be given to rising eleventh graders.

    Dates: June 17 through July 26

Intersections of Identity

List of 1 items.

  • Intersections of Identity: Leadership, Diversity, and Equity

    During this 3-week course, students will examine identity and how it relates to them as well as the values within our school community.  Students will engage in authentic conversations related to equity, diversity, inclusion, and contemporary issues impacting society as a whole.  This course will help in cultural competency development to compassionately address the increasingly complex challenges of our global society.  Students will study the history and practice of diversity and inclusion, examining their own personal identities in order to enable them to communicate openly and honestly with their peers and with the larger Buckley community. The students will develop leadership skills to effectively engage in discourse and education with the community surrounding topics of diversity, identity, and equity.

    This course satisfies the Buckley School's Intersections of Identity requirement.

    Dates:  June 17 through July 5
    Hours:  8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
