Summary: The Summer English Language program offers students from around the globe the opportunity to be a part of a residential community while attending an intensive English language program.
Our four week intensive language program allows students to enjoy life in our one of a kind scenic area while developing their English fluency.
We have developed our program to accommodate students at the Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced levels. Upon arrival students are tested and placed according to their English language proficiency level.
Students will spend twenty hours a week in the classroom. Classes will focus on reading, writing, speaking and listening skills, with an emphasis on communicative skills. Each week features twenty hours of morning classroom instruction.
Every afternoon students will have an opportunity to take part in local cultural and outdoor activities. Working with their American buddies (local students who volunteer to accompany international students on their afternoon adventures) students will have chances to mountain bike, kayak, hike, swim and attend a variety of local events like a county fair, a farmer’s market or a free outdoor musical performance. In this way students have the opportunity to learn American customs, experience local culture and develop greater proficiency in the English language.
Our summer program is a wonderful way for students to become accustomed to life in a private boarding school.
In the final week of the program the iTEP test is administered to determine students’ proficiency levels after the intensive course work.
Students between the ages of 14 and 17 are welcome in the program. All levels of English language proficiency are welcome. No test scores are required.
As students experience the local American culture, they learn more than just English. They realize how to be responsible global citizens. Our school values diversity, fairness, inclusion and international understanding. Our program is
