CSW Global Summer Academy

The Cambridge School of Weston (CSW) Global Summer Academy immersion program offers you the fascinating opportunity to participate in an American high school experience. 
Spend two weeks taking classes with expert faculty and making new friends. Learn a new skill, or develop an existing passion as you discover the benefits of a uniquely progressive education.

While CSW's Global Summer Academy is typically an in-person experience, with students living together on-campus in school dormitories, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the 2021 program will be completely virtual, and offered at a reduced rate. All courses will be offered online over Zoom.

Purposeful classroom experiences and assessments allow you to develop and practice independent thinking, critical analysis, imaginative problem solving, and constructive risk-taking.

English Proficiency Test

We strongly recommend that all applicants complete and submit the Duolingo English Test (DET), which combines an English proficiency test with a brief video interview. Duolingo’s technology and format allows applicants to complete the test at any time or place with internet access.
