Kinkaid Summer School Program Canceled for 2021

Dear Kinkaid Community:

Due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, we will once again not have summer classes and camps this year.  Hosting a summer program involves a tremendous amount of planning and preparation - determining the offerings, hiring faculty and staff, advertising, hosting open houses, enrolling students, scheduling, etc.  The School is simply not in the position of committing to this summer’s program with so much uncertainty.  Underlying our decision is concern for the health and safety of our community. 

I am also cognizant of the toll that the pandemic continues to take on our faculty and staff, including the nurses, the technology staff, and the facilities staff.  This summer in particular will be important for recharging and preparing for the next school year. 

I know this is disappointing news to some in our community and is yet further disruption caused by COVID-19.  I remain grateful for Karen Metclaf for her leadership of the program, for all Kinkaid faculty and staff who have taught and coached in our summer program, and for our community support of summer classes and camps at Kinkaid.

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. 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.

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.
