Holy Innocents’ Summer Academics program continues developing in students a love of learning, even in the summer months! Our program is proud to offer both traditional and experiential learning opportunities for high school students. Please enjoy this video to learn more about it. 

Our traditional program offers a variety of credit forward two-week and four-week courses that provide students with greater academic flexibility during the school year by freeing up space in their schedule for additional electives, including AP coursework, Fine Arts and PEAK offerings, or for more advanced world languages or religion courses than they would otherwise be able to take.

With our experiential learning courses, students spend five days in a traditional Summer Academics setting preparing for and debriefing after thought-provoking travel abroad experiences to exciting destinations across the globe. For our experiential learners, the world truly is their classroom!
