when does summer school start and how long is it? do we pay extra for summer school?
Your DS or DD will know the exact dates but it starts up right after graduation and runs until the last weekend in June (or at least it did last year). There was no extra cost involved save driving 2 cars down so DS could have one for the summer session and then taking the train down to drive the car back.
As a bonus, the car was stuffed with all the stuff the B-splitters didn't want to trust to the lockers. I had enough uniforms to start my own private navy. Not to mention text books, printers, a set of weights and a chin up bar. Had to drive all that back down at the end of October when they came back.
Did he need a car for summer school? Was parking a problem?
You mean July - We drove the car down to KP on July 3 and picked it up at the end of the month. No, he really didn't need a car, but like baxted said he wanted it for storage. Parking wasn't a problem during summer session, but driving on the Island can be an experience.
My DS (Plebe) is going to summer school but I thought he said he was only giong to be home for a week at the end of June and had to be back at the academy. So just needed more clarification on the dates as we are trying to possibly plan a family vacation. Also, if he wanted to have a car up there for the summer would he be allowed. I told him that he could have his car up there his senior (providing all goes well for him at the academy) and he said he wasn't particulary interested in having to drive in New York traffic. I grew up on Long Island so I am used to it but he certainly is not.
