  • US History (Academic Credit)

    The one year course offers an overview of United States History from a variety of perspectives. Depending upon who is telling the story, that story can be very different. Students will be asked to familiarize themselves with both the “party line” and with stories told by long excluded voices from the American past. Students should expect a great deal of reading, writing, and independent research projects, culminating in a substantial research paper using primary and secondary sources. Students will be asked to read, write, think, speak, and offer presentations both alone and in concert with others. Successful completion of this course will count for Academic Credit.

  • Writer’s Workshop

    Over three weeks, we’ll explore three different ways to write within a genre that encompasses approaches that range from YA Dystopian to modern takes on traditional fairy tale formats. Along with an emphasis on “world building” and the hero’s journey that are so often associated with the genre, we’ll focus on consideration and creation of writing that pushes the boundaries of subject matter that is increasingly popular and ever-present in the world of fiction.

  • Yoga

    This course is about cultivating a balanced state of being known as yoga. Yoga is defined as union - union between the mind and the body. We will do exercises that balance strength and flexibility, effort and relaxation, control and letting go. Each class will include dynamic stretches, poses, meditation, and breath exercises called "pranayama." We will work to broaden awareness of body/mind health. By the end of the summer, the students will have a set of tools that ease anxiety and tension and also enhance focus, concentration, and presence of mind.

    This class will include students in both the Middle and Upper School. For students in the Upper School, this class will count as a PE Credit.
