Gaining Experience & Knowledge at Kinkaid Summer School
The Kinkaid summer school offers a variety of programs for students entering pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. We offer students both enrichment and remedial courses, taught by Kinkaid faculty, other qualified teachers and visiting artists.
Our four-week academic courses traditionally run in June and early July. Morning Learning Camp is offered as a four-week program or on a weekly basis. Many of our special Art and Academic Enrichment Camps and Sports Camps are offered on a weekly basis.
Both Kinkaid and non-Kinkaid students are welcome to participate in all summer school camps and classes.

Academic credit is awarded only at the discretion of a student's regular school. Minimum attendance requirements must be met to receive recommendation for credit. Students who are absent are unlikely to receive the session's recommendation for credit. Students seeking academic credit for summer courses should get approval from their regular school prior to the start of summer classes. When they are requested, reports will be sent to a student's regular school.
The Kinkaid Engineering, Math, and Science Institute was founded in 1975. Our purpose has been consistent since the beginning: to help under-represented youth identify their talents and appreciate their possibilities as educated men and women; to encourage under-represented youth to pursue college or university educations and, in particular, careers in science or engineering. Beyond these purposes, it is the hope that the Institute students will be worthy examples of academic ambitions and achievement in their Houston area schools.
