Our summer program is both a requirement and a highlight for Challenge Scholars in middle school. Each summer program experience provides additional opportunities for academic and cultural enrichment, directly contributing to their successful transition into a competitive and academically demanding independent school environment.
Over several weeks, students engage in a rigorous and comprehensive academic program with experienced teaching faculty to build on writing, reading, math, and critical thinking skills. They learn how to harness the power of technology to research and present learned material.
Students also engage in a variety of enrichment activities including visits to colleges and businesses, service learning, athletics, art activities, and outdoor adventure trips that focus on community building, team work, leadership, and risk taking.
