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


Summer Courses for Credit | High School

  • Students entering grades 9-12 are eligible. Each student can only register for one of the classes offered.

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.

Summer Reading Requirement | Middle School

To maintain reading stamina, we recommend a minimum of 30 minutes of reading, 5 days a week. Reading material should include a balance between challenging (at or slightly above your child’s reading level) and choice – some challenging reading should require parent involvement to assist in processing higher-level concepts — other choice reading can include topics of high interest to the student. Ultimately, the idea is to foster a love of reading across a range of genres and levels. We also value journaling as a tool to develop critical thinking skills for both reading reflection as well as independent thinking and processing. We won’t require anything to be turned in, but you are strongly encouraged to find a way to hold your child accountable for this weekly reading as it will only improve all their skills and help them to be ready for school in the fall.
