Summer Programs

The academic year is over, but that doesn’t mean the learning and athletic development needs to stop. SMCS students have many opportunities to maintain and improve their skills during the summer months with a variety of offerings ranging from sports camps and active enrichment classes to exercise classes.

Academic Summer Programs

High School | Summer Courses for Credit

SMCHS students can enroll in a self-paced health OR personal finance class over the summer. The modular design of both courses provides flexibility for students to complete the coursework over the summer and at their own pace. SMC has joined in a partnership with a Catholic Virtual Academy. At the beginning of each module is a section dedicated to the relevant teachings of the Catholic Church. This provides students a lens or mental framework for learning.

Middle School | Summer Reading Requirement

Because we believe that strong reading and comprehension skills are essential to successful scholarship, all SMCMS students are required to read a minimum of three books during the summer months preceding sixth, seventh and eighth grade, as part of the reading/language arts curriculum.

A brief report on each book is to be prepared and handed in during the first week of school. This assignment is required and will be graded. Books are chosen from the list of recommendations based upon the student’s lexile score, as determined through MAP testing.

In the summer of 2019, SMCS STEM Club hosted the third annual SMCS STEM Club Fly IN “Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Mission to the Moon.”  Our aviation education event included learning about the theory of flight as well as a variety of fun hands-on and age-focused aviation-related activities.

The FLY IN featured a variety of new hands-on flight related activities and projects the students could build and take home with them including a model rocket that they could build and launch on the “ZEPHYRS Airfield”!

There were drones available for the students to fly and they were encouraged to bring their own if they liked. We also had flight simulators, a real ultra light aircraft on display, and much more!
