The Eliot School will be holding it’s Summer Program for Children in 2023!

Don’t miss your chance to register your child(ren) starting on January 25th.

The program will run from June 26th until August 11th and we can’t wait to make, build, paint, collage, sculpt, sew, stitch, knit, play and more!


Health & Safety

In an abundance of caution and to ensure the health and safety of all our students and teachers, our Summer Program will be a combination of indoor and outdoor programming this year.

• Classes will take place primarily inside our schoolhouse, with its new air exchange and filtration system, with limited classes activity occurring outdoors under tent canopies in the Eliot School yard. 

• As the Eliot Policy stands now, students are required to be vaccinated, with proof of vaccination to be presented on the first day of each week. We will be reassessing our Mask/Vaccination policy in April 2023. More information about how masking and vax policies will work soon!

• Families can sign up for full days (9:00am-3:30pm) or for half days (just AM classes (9:00am-12pm), just PM classes (12:30-3:30)

• We offer unprogrammed early drop-off (8−9am) and extended day services (3:30−5:30 pm).

• Class sizes will be capped at 11-students with 4 classes running simultaneously during the AM/PM class periods.

• Meal, snack, and play times will be held outdoors under our tent canopies whenever possible, and in our indoor spaces during weather contingencies. 

Hands-on Fun

Activities will focus on craft, curiosity, creativity, and innovation in a fun and supportive environment. Enjoy a well-balanced schedule of themed activities. Our summer team includes highly qualified art specialists and teachers who work with us year-round teaching after-school classes, or in our School & Community Partnerships. We are excited to welcome your family and children.
