This year's Upper School Summer Enrichment Program, led by Nicole Lauria, will be focused on Science and Technology.
Topics will include:
Meeting local speakers who work in STEM fields.
Field trips to places like the Franklin Institute, and the Morris Arboretum.
Extended practice of lab-writing skills and academic writing skills.
Students who participate are excused from the ELA summer homework packet. (Except for honors class work)
Students will receive four weeks of on-campus learning (July 1-26) with off-campus excursions in the greater Philadelphia area and sessions with visitors to AIM.
This program is open to both AIM and non-AIM students, entering grades 9 through 12.
AND DON'T FORGET - AIM students who fully participate in the Summer Seminar program will receive credit for AIM's assigned summer work and will NOT be required to complete AIM's summer reading and writing requirements.
Since our Upper School Summer Seminar program is primarily focused on literacy practice and humanities instruction, we are offering an optional add-on program for math skill maintenance. This group runs each morning before the start of the seminar program and is for Upper School students (rising 9th-12th) who are continuing to work on fluency with math facts or fundamental algebraic concepts. This is not tied to a particular math curriculum or grade level and is designed to provide an opportunity to practice core math skills during the summer months.
Daily participation in this program meets the summer math requirement for AIM Upper School (except for Honors classes).
Students entering Grades 9 and 10 have the opportunity to extend their day and explore their creative interests in a “can do” environment. Choose four week-long workshops from a variety of options, including STEAM, filmmaking, fishing, sports and fitness, and other adventures. *Students will choose one workshop for each week of the summer program.
New Afternoon Programs Coming Soon for Summer 2024
Students must be enrolled in the morning enrichment program to participate in Adventure Workshops.
