Summer 2021 Programs

We are thrilled to offer a host of exciting choices for students entering grades 6-8, grades 9-12, and graduating seniors!  Six weeks of lively Online Programs begin in June.  Multiple weeks of great On-Campus Programs start in July at Occidental College, Mount Holyoke College, Haverford College, The University of Edinburgh, and University of Oxford. 

Great Books Online is live, interactive, fun and back for a second summer! Led by the same esteemed faculty and scholars as our on-campus programs, GBO models university seminars and discussions. And adds the fun and comraderie of summer camp! Each week begins with an orientation on Sundays.  The program runs from 9:00am-2:00pm daily Monday through Friday with optional special events in the evenings twice weekly.

Writer's Workshop Online is a one-week intensive writing program offered on the campus of Mount Holyoke College and also Online.  Aspiring young authors learn nuanced writing techniques and gain experience across genres and styles with our distinguished faculty of published authors and accomplished writers. A stand-alone program or a great addition to a week of our traditional discussion-based Great Books literature programs.
