2024 Programs

DISCOVERY PROGRAM
(GRADES K–1 | 4- AND 8-WEEK SESSIONS)

Students in grades K and 1 are in our Discovery Program and do not select classes. They can choose to enroll in our 8-week session or one of our two 4-week sessions.

CLASSIC PROGRAM
(GRADES 2–12 | 4- AND 8-WEEK SESSIONS)

Students who have completed grades 2 through 12 choose a two-period Major and a one-period Minor from our Departments of Art, Chess, Creative Writing, Dance, Music, Nature & Sustainability, and Theater. Students also choose a one-period Recreational Activity from our Departments of Chess, Dance, and Recreational Arts. 

Students can choose to enroll in our 8-week session or one of our two 4-week sessions. If your child is attending our 8-week session, please find a Major, Minor, and Recreational Activity that they are interested in for both the 4-week A and 4-week B sessions. Some classes are offered for both A and B, while others are only offered for one. The majority of our classes are four weeks long, which means that if a student chooses to take the same class for both 4-week A and 4-week B, there will be new students entering the class, and there may be some repetition in curriculum. The only classes that must be taken for all eight weeks are the Usdan Troupe and the Ensemble. 

ALLEGRO MUSIC PROGRAM
(GRADES 2–12 | 4- AND 8-WEEK SESSIONS)

Students who have completed grades 2 through 12 enroll in a Music Major, a Minor of their choice, and U Time as their Recreational Activity. The program follows the same outline as Usdan’s Classic Program and offers a more affordable tuition to take this specific combination of courses.

Students must be enrolled in the following classes to qualify for the Allegro Music Program:

  • Major: Concert Band, Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, Junior/Senior Vocal Ensemble, Junior/Senior Piano, or Composition: Classical Music
  • Minor: You choose!
  • Recreational Activity: U Time (includes swim)

RECREATIONAL CAMP PROGRAM
(GRADES 2–8 | 1-WEEK SESSIONS)

Campers who have completed grades 2 through 8 are eligible to enroll in one or multiple of our Recreational Camp Program sessions, including eight 1-week sessions. Campers in this program do not select classes.
