Summer Connections begins June 27 and runs through August 12, 2016.
As the new director of Summer Connections, I am thrilled to continue in the tradition of providing outstanding programming that Dwight-Englewood has to offer. Students who enter our campus every summer encounter an enriching environment that stimulates intellectual growth, fuels creativity, ignites imagination, and fosters a path to discovery. What better way to spend the summer than at Summer Connections!
The mission of the Dwight-Englewood Summer Connections program is to engage learners in the joy of discovery through a variety of experiences. These include:
- Enrichment in academics & explorations in the arts
- Adventures in sports & healthy living
- Leadership development & connections to the global world
- Innovative approaches to teaching and learning
- Integrated technology in classroom instruction
With the opening of the new Hajjar STEM Center, coupled with world-class faculty and innovative approaches to curriculum design, the academic challenges of the Enrichment Program for middle school and the Scholars program for high school students will provide leading-edge opportunities for academic advancement. The early childhood Discoveries and elementary school Adventurers programs give our youngest campers an imaginative and joyous experience through thematic exploration of literature, sports, science, nature and getting to know the world around them. Our new Deep Dive Immersives provide experiential learning with students having close collaboration with master level faculty. Deep Dive Immersives generally range from one week to two weeks in length. The students’ immersion in the topic of study is long enough to provide a depth of knowledge and skills building in the targeted areas.
There is something for everyone. We offer a rich breadth of courses designed to meet the needs of students on a multitude of levels. Whether you’re exploring new topics, developing new skills, or wanting the challenge of advancing to a higher level, Dwight-Englewood Summer Connections strives to deliver outstanding opportunities for engagement in a safe and nurturing environment on our beautiful 45-acre campus.
We invite you to join our community this summer and look forward to seeing you on campus.
