Summer Research Partnership with Madison Country Day School

What is the MCDS Summer Research Academy? 

The Summer Research Academy (SRA) is a partnership between Madison Country Day School and Edgewood College. Students will have the opportunity to engage in authentic science research, mentored by practicing scientists.

There are three goals for this intensive program:

  • Learn about a new area of scientific research from experts in the field
  • Design and carry out your own scientific investigation
  • Reflect on the process of doing science and develop research skills that will be useful throughout your academic career

Who can participate?

SRA is open to motivated science students entering grades 9-12.

Space is limited! Each session will be capped at 10 students.

When is it?

There are four different programs that students can register for. Each program is two weeks long. Two workshops will meet concurrently during the first two-week session and the other two workshops meet concurrently for the second two weeks.

Each workshop meets 9 a.m.–4 p.m. each day. On the final day of the session, the students will participate in a poster session showcasing their work. Families and friends will be invited to attend.

  • Session 1: June 17–21, 2024 & June 24–28, 2024
  • Session 2: July 8–12, 2024 & July 15–19, 2024


The cost of each 2 week program will be $800.  There are some scholarships available.
