Brilliant Summer from a Distance

We were very pleased with the response to last summer’s “Brilliant Summer from a Distance” — virtual academic and enrichment classes. Our innovative teachers developed new courses that allowed girls and boys to connect virtually and to continue exploring throughout the summer months. We will continue “Brilliant Summer from a Distance” offerings for summer 2021. Virtual summer classes and camps will include a blended model of synchronous real-time learning with a teacher and a group of students with asynchronous independent activities plus short breaks. We recommend that parents regularly monitor their children’s activities, especially for younger ages. A week prior to the class, teachers will share with parents a detailed daily schedule.
