RISING

Grades

7-12

Upper School Credit Courses

Grades: Rising grades 9–10 Session A: June 7-23, 9 a.m.–1 p.m. Session B: July 24-Aug 11, 9 a.m.–1 p.m. Class Fee: $890

Upper School credit courses are open to all students seeking summer enrichment opportunities. St. Catherine’s students may take credit courses for advancement. Summer grades will not be used in the calculation of a student’s GPA; however, these courses will be recorded on the student’s transcript. Credit Class Attendance Policy Class attendance is very important because of the condensed nature of the courses. Each class period is considered to be one week’s worth of material. No more than one unexcused absence or two excused absences are allowed. If a student misses one day more than one unexcused absence, even if the second is excused, the student will risk forfeiting the course credit.

Everyone gathers each Friday at the end of the camp day for Friday Frolics, a time for special events, performances or concerts. The carnivallike atmosphere is not only a great way to end the week but gives campers and staff a chance to get together and engage in competitive and artistic activities with an outdoor theme.

St. Catherine’s Brilliant Summer Program holds an evening Family Festival for parents and visitors on July 6 for Session One participants and July 27 for Session Two participants. The festivals are a culmination of the campers’ efforts and provide an opportunity for children to display their artwork and perform music, dance and theatre productions.

A final schedule confirming your child’s classes will be sent to you by June 1 with an orientation letter and carpool assignments. On the first day of each session, students will receive a laminated copy of their schedule on the back of their name tag to wear each day of camp.
