3.  Do you have to be a BASIS Independent student to sign up?
NO: Our program is open to BASIS Independent and non-BASIS Independent students. The summer program is a great way for current BASIS Independent families to continue their experience during the summer. Moreover, the summer program gives non-BASIS Independent families a chance to get to know our world class educators and stellar new campus for the first time, whether they'll eventually consider applying to our program or not.

4.  Who teaches your summer enrichment?
Our enrichment summer programs are led by a team of BASIS Independent-trained expert educators and staff, many of whom are full-time teachers at BASIS Independent Brooklyn. Every teacher is a subject expert in their particular summer course.
