Courses/Weekly Themes

Our summer academic enrichment program is implemented through four different courses each day: Arts & Crafts, Language Arts, Science, and Music & Theater Arts. The courses are designed by a team of credentialed teachers addressing a different weekly theme. 

The weekly themes for 2023 are: “Under the Sea,”  “America the Beautiful,” “Silk Road," “South of the Equator,” and “Up, Up and Away.”

Explore the expanse, beauty, and mystery of what lies beneath our oceans.

America the Beautiful

Silk Road

Explore the exchange of ideas, languages, and cultures as caravans traversed the expansive, treacherous journey from Italy through the Middle East, China, and India


South of the Equator 

Explore the people and expansive geography of the Southern Hemisphere where toilets flush "backward" and Christmas is in the summer.

Up, Up and Away

 Space has always fascinated humans; learn about the expanse and allure of our universe.
