In general, families are responsible for transporting their students to Summer Scholars during the registration window and picking them up at the conclusion of the program. However, to make long-distance travel more manageable for families, Summer Scholars does provide limited shuttle service to major airports for an extra fee.
One of the most complicated aspects of the Lawrenceville Summer Scholars program is working with families to make sure boarding students arrive and depart from campus safely. We cannot be responsible for students traveling as unaccompanied minors and using air travel without extensive advanced communication. Parents must check with the airline to see if the airlines offer unaccompanied minor service prior to purchasing tickets, and they should contact the Lawrenceville Summer Scholars office, in writing at email@example.com, to be sure travel details are clear. Only written communication will make it possible for Lawrenceville Summer Scholars staff to pick up and drop off students at the airport.
Residential students arriving by plane should plan to arrive at JFK International Airport or Newark International Airport. For $150, we offer bus shuttles for students from JFK and EWR to campus. Our shuttles will be departing JFK and Newark Airports at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Lawrenceville Summer Scholars cannot be responsible for transportation to campus students whose flights arrive later than 2:00 p.m. on arrival day.
Upon arrival, our staff will meet your scholar at the baggage claim area after security and escort him/her to the shuttle bus. If the airline requires a staff member to meet your scholar at the arrival gate, please contact our office to arrange this.
Boarding students departing by plane may take our bus shuttles ($150) to JFK or Newark. Buses will depart The Lawrenceville School campus at approximately 8:00 a.m. Lawrenceville staff will escort your scholar to the check in desk/security line. If the airline requires a staff member to escort your scholar to the departure gate. Lawrenceville Summer Scholars cannot be responsible for transportation to JFK or EWR for students whose flights depart earlier than 12:00 p.m. or on another day.
To arrange for your own transportation to or from campus, we recommend contacting King Limousine and Transportation services, which offers a minor accompaniment service, at 800-951-2680.
** Day students will depart regular time on Friday, July 26, 2019.
