Collegiate Summer is a four-week program designed exclusively for students entering 8th grade. By participating in Collegiate Summer, 8th graders get a chance to experience the St. Joe's community while developing valuable skills as they prepare for high school.
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. Afternoon activities include sports, board games, movies, model rockets, art, and more. In addition, a schedule of guest speakers and entertainers is offered.
