Numerous studies have documented what educators call "summer slide." Collegiate Summer keeps students' minds engaged with interactive morning classes including technology, science, reading, critical thinking, writing, and mathematics.
In the afternoon, students have opportunities to participate in group recreational activities using our outstanding campus facilities, including the outdoor athletic complex. A variety of activities will be offered each day, including sports such as basketball, bowling, soccer, street hockey, handball, and football; non-athletic offerings including board games, movies, model rockets, and art activities. In addition, a schedule of guest speakers, entertainers, and optional field trips are offered.
