Registration Information

  • The Summer Pre-K-1 program will be held this year at Whiting Lane Elementary School at 47 Whiting Lane. Students will have their schedules mailed to them just before the start date. High school students are enrolled in the courses registered for unless otherwise notified. You will be called as soon as possible if the class you selected is filled or cancelled. Classes that have insufficient enrollment will be cancelled a few days before the published starting date. Registration continues into the first week of classes at the full tuition rate.
  • The registration fee applies to each student ($16), and is paid only once each summer regardless of the number of courses or programs selected.
  • A full refund, including the registration fee, will be given if:
    a) a course is cancelled
    b) a course is full
  • The Summer School reserves the right to cancel classes, add new classes, combine classes, change instructors, make modifications to the proposed course offerings, or make any other changes needed to insure the fiscal integrity and/or educational excellence of the program.
  • Because of a collaborative arrangements between Bloomfield/Hartford/ West Hartford Summer School and the following towns, all residents of the following towns pay the West Hartford resident rate for all programs: Avon, Berlin, Bloomfield, Canton, East Granby, East Windsor, Enfield, Farmington, Glastonbury, Granby, Hartford, Newington, Region 10 Burlington/Harwinton, Rocky Hill, Simsbury, South Windsor, Wethersfield, and Windsor. Residents of all other towns are welcome at the non-resident rate.
  • Bus transportation for the Pre-K-Grade 1 program must be arranged through the Continuing Education office (tel. 860-561-6900). If your child does not get off the bus as you expect, please call the Continuing Education office at 860-561-6900 who will coordinate communications to locate your child. Concerns about bus transportation in general should be directed to the Transportation Office at 860-561-6647.
  • We don’t like to cancel courses, but sometimes it is necessary if enrollments are low. If this does happen you will be notified before the first class. Please register early as your registration might be the one that enables the class to run!
  • For all programs, class sizes range from approximately 6 students to 22 students and above. Some classes, because of equipment and/or facility limitations, have specific maximums. Some classes must be canceled if a certain minimum enrollment is not reached. Class size is also determined by student interest and staff availability. Some classes of a similar nature may be combined.
  • Building orientation at Whiting Lane Elementary School will be held between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Friday, June 24. This is a self-guided visit to give you an opportunity to familiarize your child with the school. Participation is welcome but optional. You should begin your visit where the students arrive on the bus.
  • Catalogs are available at all West Hartford Public Schools, all West Hartford libraries, Town Hall, and the Continuing Education Office.
