Please click here for the Summer Studies Application
Students wishing to receive credit for a Summer Studies course must get approval from the school in which they are enrolled. The appropriate school official's signature is required on the application form. For Sidwell Friends students this is mandatory prior to submitting an application, for students from other schools it is highly recommended that approval is received prior to submitting application to ensure that credit for the course will be received. In some cases, Sidwell Friends students may be given enrollment priority.
A six-week credit course meets three and a half hours daily and is the equivalent of a full year course, worth one credit. Classes do not meet on the Fourth of July Federal holiday. Any anticipated absence longer than two days must be cleared with the Director of Summer Studies prior to the start of classes. A student who misses more than two instructional days of school may not receive credit for the course. If a student is unexpectedly absent, please call 202-537-8160 by 8:30 am on the morning of the absence.
The School reserves the right to cancel any course or to make modifications to any course as required. Students affected will be notified immediately. Please see Sidwell Summer Policies section of our website for more detail regarding this policy.
Note for Sidwell Friends Students: SFS students applying for credit courses must submit applications to the Sidwell Summer Office after receiving the appropriate signatures. Enrollment priority will go first to students who have extenuating circumstances. The remainder of the places on the course roster will be filled based on the order in which applications are received. If enrollment in a given course reaches capacity, Sidwell Summer will maintain a waiting list for the course.
Please note the Early Riser and Camp 'til Six registrationprotocol has changed. Camp 'til Six and Early Risers are only available for weekly sessions. There is not a daily Early Risers/Camp 'til Six option. Weekly Early Risers and Camp ‘til Six registration should be done in conjunction with camp program registration.
Weekly registration should be completed no later than the Monday morning that a program begins. This allows adequate time to notify program leaders that a child should go to Camp ‘til Six.

Adding programs is easy! Go online and you can manage your account to add programs or to make additional payments. However, if you would like to change your camper’s schedule or withdraw your child from a program for which he/she is already registered, an Application Change Form must be completed and sent to the Sidwell Summer office via fax, email or mail. Click here for the Application Change Form.
There are no fees to add programs. After May 1st, any changes to an existing registration will result in a $25 administrative fee. This includes switching sessions of the same program as well as switching to a different program for a week for which you have already registered. All balances are due May 1st. After May 1st, in addition to the $25 administrative fee, any program balance must be paid in full at the time the change is made. After May 1, tuition payments are non-refundable even if a camper switches to a program with a lower fee and the $25 administrative will also apply. All deposits are non-refundable. Full payment is due May 1st and no refunds are available after that date.
