SUMMER PROGRAMS

SAT SUMMER FUN CAMPS

We know the SAT. We know it well. We prepare students for the revised test that emphasizes critical reading and thinking skills with an intensive, focused preparation plan. Students enrolled in this 12-day Intensive Camp will take weekly full-length tests and learn how to improve their scores week by week. We do not simply give students practice tests and go over the answers; we teach students critical reading & thinking skills that are transferable to their English and Math classes and will help them succeed in high school and beyond. For those interested in the ACT, the skills & strategies taught in this camp are 100% transferable to the ACT.

We have created a Leadership Summit during which students gain the inspiration, initiative, and skills to become global leaders in an increasingly complicated world. In order to succeed in this moment of uncertainty, students must develop their intellect, build their character, and learn practical skills. This is an accelerated version of our Design Thinking, Design Building, and Digital Design courses. By the end of the week, students will pitch solvent projects to a team of experts and community leaders.

COLLEGE PLANNING FOR 9TH, 10TH AND 11TH GRADERS

There is one thing we hear from our 12th graders while they apply to colleges: I wish I would have started earlier. Therefore, we offer this workshop to high school students who are not yet applying to college but want the essential information that will prepare them for the journey. We introduce the students to every college in the United States and abroad, new and emerging areas of study, financial aid, and how to discover their passions so they choose the program and school that is best for them in the future.

Tuition:

$30 per class

Mondays: 3:30pm-4:30pm

DIGITAL LITERACY & WRITING:

This course teaches students how to critically read texts that are relevant and exciting, ranging from Oscar-winning animated short films to Kendrick Lamar songs. The skills learned in the workshop translate beautifully to reading high school texts and prepare students to be critical readers in college. We teach students how to approach texts and speak about them in a holistic, comprehensive manner. Then, we model how to write a good introduction, paragraph and conclusion.

Tuition:

$40 per class

Mondays: 11:30am-1pm

GLOBAL LEADERSHIP

Students must be connected to crucial global events that shape our present and most definitely will shape their futures. In this workshop, global events act as our texts. We discuss local, national and global politics, mass migration, economic shifts, injustice and inequality, regional conflicts and so much more. We use primary sources, ground our conversations in historical context, and consider ways we can engage with problems through projects. Our conversations are lively, respectful, and all-inclusive. Our goal is to ensure students know how to think rather than telling them what to think.

Tuition:

$40 per class

Mondays: 5pm-6:30pm
Fridays: 1:30pm-3pm

TAKE ACTION! PROJECTS

Using Global Leadership as an inspiration, Take Action! Projects is an active hour for students to take on their particular passions and interests. Traditional high school clubs include lunch meetings and bake sales. Our projects empower students to explore their curiosities, passions, and possible career paths by way of problem solving, research, collaboration, and a search for measurables. Students learn skills such as project management, vision boarding, prototyping, website building, graphic design software, video editing, and event planning, and public speaking skills.

Tuition:

$30 per class ($20 if taken with Global Leadership)

Mondays: 6:30pm-7:30pm
Fridays: 3pm-4pm

GLOBAL CINEMA

Film is the text that moves this generation of students. We must engage with films so that we can learn more about ourselves and the world around us. This course centers on films from around the globe - from Italy to Palestine to the United States. Together, we research, watch, discuss, and appreciate films that enrich our understanding of humanity and our global community.

Tuition:

$20

Fridays: 4:30pm-7pm

SPEAKING CONFIDENTLY

This workshop will introduce students to various types of speech and presentation strategies. We want students to improve their classroom confidence and prepare them to be articulate, interesting human beings. We particularly suggest that students pair this course with Current Events so that they can learn how to talk about the issues of today with fluency and confidence.

Tuition:

$30 per class

Mondays: 1:30pm-2:30pm
