Summer Studies Program 

The Saint Bernard School Summer Studies Program is a perfect opportunity for all students entering grades 6-12 to brush up on skills, explore new areas of interest and earn additional credits.

With a variety of in person and virtual offerings, Saint Bernard’s Summer Studies Program offers something for everyone. Courses are taught by  Saint Bernard Faculty members and range from general interest classes such as Exploring Computer Science to more specialized topics such as Geometry Via Origami, Astronomy, Number Theory, Entrepreneurship, Economics, and Journalism.  Enrichment classes include SAT Prep, Writing the College Essay, Math Skills and Study Skills.

According to Head of School Don Macrino, with school closures and remote learning due to the pandemic students have not been able to get 100% of their learning experience. “We have built a program that offers a selection of 21 enrichment, foundational and for credit courses that will help students brush up on their skills. We believe that participation in this program will close some of the educational gaps created by the pandemic.”

 

The 2021 Costs for the classes range from $200 for two-week enrichment courses to $250 for a three-week half-credit course and $400 for a six-week one-credit course. The SAT Preparation course is a four week class offered at $350.

 

We see our summer program as part of our school’s wider mission to serve the needs of students not just at our school but throughout the region,” Director of School Counseling and Summer Programming, Holly Cyr says. “Based on last year’s positive response we are offering a robust program for the summer of 2021.”

Student Testimonials

 

“I got to know the teachers and other kids that would be in my classes in the fall.  I would tell other students that even if you are pretty good in math, study skills and writing, you will learn a lot of things that will help you in middle school and I think in high school.  I’m good in math but the class taught me so many things that I have been using this year.”  ~ Teresa, Grade 6, Summer 2020

 

Reflecting on his experience, Jack '21 said "when it came time to apply for college he was less stressed because his college essay was complete and ready for submission.  To date, his acceptances have been to Villonova, Purdue, Baylor and Stonehill. He also said that the Constitutional Law class prepared him for his Advanced Placement US Government and Politics class this year."
