The LSPI extends across two phases with an academic year sandwiched in between.  Phase I is held in June of each year and Phase II in July.  While some students take both phases in the same summer, it is advisable to apply to the LSPI early in your undergraduate career so you can get the full benefit of the Institute across two summers and two academic years.
