SUMMER GREAT BOOKS ACADEMY FOR GRADES K-5
The Great Books Summer Academy is Chaminade’s featured summer camp aimed at educating the whole child. Each day, students have an opportunity to exercise their minds, bodies, and creative spirits. The Great Books K-12 curriculum is the cornerstone of the academy and is specially designed to help students become independent readers and thinkers ready for the diverse demands of the 21st century. Each academy student is enrolled in a 55-minute grade-leveled Great Books course which will be taught using the ‘Shared Inquiry’ method. This research-proven strategy combines rich texts and active, collaborative problem-solving that increases achievement in reading comprehension, critical thinking, and communication skills. Each week students read, write, and create with a unique combination of three classes in morning sessions on both of Chaminade’s safe and beautiful campuses.

SUMMER STE[+a]M ACADEMY FOR GRADES K-5
Summer Stea[+a]m Camp is one of our most popular offerings.  In DaVinci’s time expertise in art and coexisted naturally. Adding Art education to Science, Mathematics, and Engineering gives students the full toolbox for solving challenging problems. Artists and scientists tend to approach problems with a similar open-mindedness and inquisitiveness -they both do not fear the unknown, they make natural partners  Each week, students in the Summer Ste[+a]m Academy will take three classes combining arts, robotics, math, and science.

  • MORNING SESSION: 8:30 A.M. - 11:30 A.M., DAILY M-F
