Summer Boarding School Programs - Oliverian School
Summer Session Overview

Designed with a Focus on Support and Enrichment

The Oliverian Summer Session is intentionally small to provide maximum contact between the students and the experienced, knowledgeable, and dedicated faculty. Students live in a family atmosphere with small dormitories of four to eight students and a dormitory parent who will guide the students in practicing independent living skills. In addition to dorm parents and teachers, students will have an advisor and a counselor who will help to guide them through the program.

Our seven-week Summer Session offers boys and girls in grades nine through twelve an educational experience which inspires a passion for new knowledge and an understanding of the relevance of education to daily life. With an emphasis on experiential learning, our program allows students to pursue traditional subjects in non-traditional ways, allowing them to engage more fully and apply the subject matter to real-life circumstances. Students with different learning styles will find support, encouragement, and success.

The Summer Session offers academic credit in English, mathematics, social sciences, environmental science, and art. Academic courses run Monday through Thursday. Mornings are dedicated to experiential learning based on adventure, stewardship, and the arts.  Afternoons are focused, individualized, and targeted toward academic study and support.  Friday activities are on-campus stewardship projects and weekends are reserved for off-campus experiential learning and recreational activities that students will help choose and plan. We believe and recognize that every student is unique and comes to our Summer Session his or her own goals, needs, and passions.

The Oliverian School Summer Session begins on Sunday, June 25, 2017 and ends on Saturday, August 12, 2017.
