COVID-19 Update

We are aware of the extraordinary circumstances that may occur due to COVID-19, but we are doing everything we can to hold the Summer School Programs in 2023 under consideration of everyone’s safety. Should anything change due to state laws that would inhibit us to hold the Summer School Programs on site, we might be switching the Summer Schools to an online or hybrid format and adjust the schedule on short notice.
