What the Parents Have to Say...
Marcia S., parent, Florida
"A big thank you for the most wonderful program. Nicolas had the most amazing time. Nicolas loved everything about the program and I felt very comfortable that he was well taken care of... You guys are awesome and I will recommend the program to all my friends."
Alison S., parent, Ohio
"Thank you very much for all you did to allow Hilary to take part in your program. From a parent's standpoint it was phenomenal. I so appreciated the supervision that took place and the college kids who help with this. Hilary was very influenced by them and has come home determined to do her best in high school so that she can go to one of the colleges her PA's go to."
Bruce B., parent, Florida
"I can tell you that our son Drew, who spent his week at Stanford, was thrilled with the program, said it was the most fun he ever had away from home, and wished the program lasted longer—he really wasn't ready to come back. It was really a terrific success."
Bonnie W., parent, New Hampshire
"She had the BEST time! As a parent, I was anxious that her first "away" camp experience be positive—the Great Books Summer Program exceeded my dreams. The academic component was challenging, and I know that it boosted Lindsey's confidence and desire to learn. She also had a lot of fun! I couldn't ask for anything more!"
Andrea R., parent, Michigan
"Connor had such a great time that his ‘word of mouth' is happening every day!... He has already recruited his brother for next year."
Judi M., parent, Connecticut
"Kate and Jackie had a wonderful experience...They met wonderful kids and the PA's were fantastic...They both proudly wear their Great Books t-shirts and have been reading more of the materials. If they learned that literature is cool, then I am happy."
"She had a ball! That was the most important. But she also learned, was challenged, and built self-esteem...I wanted my child to be among students who really cared to get something from what they read..."
Pamela M., parent, New York
"Just wanted to let you know that my two sons had a great time at the Amherst session....having rooms next door to each other worked out wonderfully. I would be happy to be a reference for your program, as my husband and I think it's great."
Debbie L., parent, Connecticut
"My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the program and did not stop talking about it when she got home. We're thrilled to hear about the two-week program. You guys are doing a great job!"
Mrs. G, parent, New York
"They had a fabulous time. They were bubbling over about reading Pablo Neruda, Young-Lee, Vonnegut and the Odyssey. The also talked about the theater games...The boys were ready to sign up for next summer as soon as the program ended."
