The Saint Columkbille Summer Program focuses on encouraging, enhancing, and expanding students’ skills during the summer months to further the student’s development and academic achievement.
An eight week, full-day Summer Program is held at Saint Columbkille Partnership School. It provides a range of academic, enrichment, and recreational activities. The program also makes use of the many resources of the Boston College Campus as well as diverse activities and resources in the Boston area. With the option of attending for two or multiple weeks, students, ages 3-12, experience a wide variety of opportunities and experiences for learning and healthy development.
As a full-day summer enrichment program, a new theme is introduced at the start of each session, guiding the curriculum and focus of learning for the week. Students engage in classroom learning, participate in hands-on activities, and participate in afternoon recreation and enrichment activities. This year we will expand our program to include exploratory in order to help children discover and develop their talents. The program will include specialists in visual arts, drama, athletics, and Spanish.
As a part of Jesuit education, we strongly believe that children must explore the world outside of themselves, to this end we will be engaging in field trips each week in every grade level.
