Summer Enrichment Academy
La Salle University Graduate Education Program annually offers a Summer Enrichment Academy for students, 6th–10th grades, for two weeks during the month of July. The students who participate explore their own special gifts and qualities, as well as investigate new ideas and technologies and meet new friends. Students in the Academy come from a variety of schools in the Philadelphia area and surrounding suburbs. Each year a new theme is crafted in order to unite and engage the students in various hands-on activities, technology, and interaction with other students.
The students who participate in the Academy are taught by graduate students in the Graduate Education Program who are seeking certification in a Secondary Education content area. The Summer Academy is a program requirement for the graduate students as part of their certification. The subject areas for the Summer Academy vary each year depending on the graduate students and their areas of certification.
Brochure and registration information about the Summer Enrichment Academy can be obtained by contacting the Graduate Education office at its location in Olney Hall, room 112, or by calling 215.951.1593.
