Summer programs instructors at Young Students day sites are responsible for teaching an appropriately challenging and rigorous course to approximately 12-14 highly able students. Instructors' core responsibilities are to plan and conduct their classes and labs within our guidelines, to monitor and evaluate the progress of each of their students, and to supervise an instructional assistant.

Instructors' daily working hours are morning and afternoon class times, weekly instructional staff meetings, and additional class planning and preparation time as needed. At day sites, instructors are responsible for working Student Check-in Day of the opening weekend and some or all of intersession weekend. In addition, instructors may also work Saturday of closing week, if needed. Otherwise, instructors do not have scheduled responsibilities evenings or weekends.
