Two important educational resources help support the mission of the Great Books Summer Program. These resources help ensure that we have the finest educators, carefully chosen readings, thorough training and exceptional campus facilities.
The Great Books Foundation, founded in 1947, is an independent, non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide people of all ages with the opportunity to read, discuss, and learn from the great works of literature. More than one million students participate in Junior Great Books, a nationally-acclaimed reading and discussion program used in thousands of public and private schools.
The Open Books Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing scholarship assistance to outstanding young people who would otherwise be unable to attend life-changing summer enrichment programs. OBF was founded in 2009 by a group of education advocates and Great Books Summer Program parents to support excellent summer learning opportunities for students in need. The Great Books Summer Program is grateful to OBF for the scholarships they help to provide our students each summer.
The Great Books Summer Program is sponsored in part by Early Advantage, an innovative, educational publisher best known for bringing "Muzzy," the BBC foreign language program to children in America.
