Academic OPS

Academic OPS is a five-week summer program designed to challenge students in grades 7-12 in mind, body and spirit. Whether the goal is to recover course credit or gain an advantage heading into the next school year, students will gain confidence in their chosen subject in a small class setting mentored by our caring faculty. 

In addition to a variety of academic offerings, students will have the opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities, all the while making new friends and discovering strengths they didn’t know they had. Evenings include organized activities such as movie trips, museum visits, bowling, golf, and more! Our onsite kitchen provides all the meals, and our student recreation center has snacks, hot grill items, pool table, ping-pong, and other activities that teens enjoy. 

With an emphasis on character building and leadership skills, Academic OPS is an enriching way for teens to spend their summers.
