Randolph-Macon Academy offers a fun academic camp for grades 6-8, summer school classes for grades 9-12, a flight camp for ages 16 and up, and English as a Second Language for grades 6-12. In R-MA’s Middle School Academic Camp, students take up to three morning classes, then participate fun activities the rest of the week. Students in grades 9-12 may take new or repeat courses for high school credit. Course options include both core courses and electives. All students in grades 6-12 may attend trips to amusement parks, movies, paintball trips, laser tag, bowling, swimming, etc.
Middle School Summer Camp: The Randolph-Macon Academy Middle School Summer Camp is an overnight academic camp for rising 6th-8th grade students and a day camp for rising 5th-8th grade students. Campers spend the morning in a relaxed classroom environment that is focused on exploring the subject, engaging the camper, and encouraging creative thought, to help develop a love of learning. Course options include Digital Media, Music Technology, The Experimental Explorer, Journeying Journalists, Legends and Lore of Virginia, Basic Math, Pre-Algebra, and Study Skills. In the afternoons, campers enjoy air-conditioned basketball facilities, an indoor pool, and the 135-acre campus with seven athletic fields and two outdoor basketball courts. They also participate in off-campus trips to the local 4-H pool, bowling alley, movie theater, laser tag, hiking, canoeing, and other local attractions. Campers may sign up for a two-week camp session or all four weeks. Upper School Summer School: For rising freshmen through seniors, summer school classes provide the opportunity to get ahead, explore a subject, or improve grades. Students may earn a full credit in a new subject by taking one of the following classes: English 10, English 11, Biology, Chemistry, French I, French II, Spanish I, French II, Algebra I, Geometry, World History I, U.S. History, or Comparative Religions. Students who prefer to explore some other subjects during summer school will find that the half-day, half-credit electives fit the bill. These include Filmmaking, Creative Writing Workshop, Financial Success & Future Planning, Public Speaking, Design Concepts for Engineering, Computer Literacy, SAT Prep, Study Skills and Computer Programming in Visual Basic. Students may take two of these courses during the four-week session.

Pre-algebra is also an option, but does not receive high school credit. Students may also take one enrichment class and one repeat class. Evenings and weekends provide the downtime for the summer school program, with swimming, bowling, sports, trips to amusement parks, town trips, and more. Flight Camp: Randolph-Macon Academy hosts a flight camp for high school students. Students in this camp take lessons in a Cessna 172, along with a ground school class geared towards soloing in a Cessna 172. It provides for approximately 15 hours of dual flight instruction. This small, personal camp has room for only eight students, and typically fills up early. It is recommended you get your application in by March 1st! English as a Second Language (ESL) Camp: Randolph-Macon Academy’s Summer Programs also provides an ESL Camp for rising 6th-12th grade students. Students stay in age-appropriate dorms. They participate in a full-immersion ESL course during the day, which often includes cultural trips to the local area or to Washington, D.C. In the evenings and on weekends, they participate in the same fun activities as their peers.
