Think Academy Summer

Since 1984, Think Summer has provided families from the greater Albuquerque community with a rich variety of planning options for their children in a safe and caring environment. Think Summer is an integral part of the Academy, reinforcing our unique mission of accessibility, affordability, excellence, and outreach. Our summer program also builds a broader sense of community as we happily see our summer students and their siblings, as well as children of faculty and alumni, return summer after summer.

At the center of our summer experience is our talented summer staff, who come from throughout New Mexico and the wider national and international educational community. Their qualifications, talents, and passions are the greatest strength of our program. We support our faculty and our students by maintaining a 1:15 class ratio and by hiring exceptional students to serve as teaching assistants and camp counselors. We often hear that many of our summer students' most memorable experiences come from the caring interactions with student employees who serve as exemplary role models.

With our sunny skies and temperate climate, summer never seems very far away in Albuquerque. It reminds us of how much we enjoy opening the campus to the sounds, sights, and accomplishments of our summer students.
