History

Founded by the late Harold Corbin in 1946, Salisbury Summer School is believed to be the first summer school of its kind in the United States. Mr. Corbin, a poet and former chair of the English Department at Salisbury School, created a program where students would receive academic enrichment by reading and studying English during the weeks of summer in the scenic Berkshire Hills of Connecticut.

Although the original objectives have remained the same, the methodology has kept current as new approaches and technologies for academic support have been developed. Today, Salisbury Summer School is internationally recognized by educators and educational consultants as foremost in helping students whose motivation, language skills and self-confidence have prevented them from reaching their full potential.
