Want to stay closer to home, but still engage in summer learning and off-campus exploration? Sign up for our Local Seminar program, exploring Philadelphia through the lens of Service Learning and Urban Studies.
Students will receive four weeks of on-campus learning (July 5-29) with at least 4 off-campus excursions in the greater Philadelphia area. Locations are still being finalized, but may include a mural arts tour, visits to a local food bank and urban garden, housing or education based service projects, and other community experiences.
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.
MATH SKILLS MAINTENANCE ADD-ON ($650)
Since our Upper School Summer Seminar program is focused primarily on the Humanities and Literacy, we are offering an add-on program for math skill maintenance. This program 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.
Back by popular demand...this virtual summer learning option is designed for students who have not yet taken the ACT test. Students will receive four weeks of direct instruction as well as a one-year subscription to Method Test Prep to track progress and continue preparation when the course is over. The course will focus on ACT Content and Practice as well as Test Taking Skills and Strategy.
Upper School students entering grades 9 and 10 will 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, visual arts, sports and fitness, and other adventures. *Students will choose one workshop for each week of the summer program.
Students must be enrolled in a morning program to participate in Afternoon Workshops. Workshop options will be available in Spring 2022.
