Summer Programs

Programs & Workshops

The Academy identifies and sponsors academic workshops and camps for teachers and teenagers.

 Academy teacher workshops occur during the school year and in summer. Nearly all take place at the Academy but on-site professional development can be arranged. The Academy is a certified host site for TI^3 and Flinn Scientific.

Academy academic programs for teenagers seek to inspire and challenge high ability, motivated students at the middle school level. These are offered during the school-year and in summer.

SPLISH

SPLISH  is an adventure for 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students, who enjoy a hands-on, mind-on, learning experience.  Each of the workshops offered will be presented by Academy students under the guidance of Academy faculty. Splish is a one day - half day program which runs during April school vacation.  The day begins at 7:50 a.m. with a short introduction and then the adventure in active learning moves on to the hour long workshops.  Starting at 8:00 a.m., each student will take part in four sessions of his/her choice.  The day will end at 12 noon.  Transportation is not included, so each participant will need to plan his/her own means of transport.  Lunch is also not included. The cost of the morning workshop is $25.00 and payment must be included with each Application and Selection Page.  Space is limited to the first 80 applicants.    Take a look at our Splish Newsletter to see how much fun our 2016 participants had.
