Registration for Harker’s 2015 summer programs is now open, giving K-grade 5, middle school and high school students a huge variety of summertime opportunities for academics, sports and just plain fun!
For students in K-grade 5, Harker’s Summer Camp+ offers a comprehensive program of morning academics and afternoon activities. Core Focus for grades 1-5 presents a variety of classes in math and language arts. For grade 1-5 students interested in the literary arts, Learning Opportunities in Literature (LOL) is a unique experience built around a central theme. Camp+’s youngest participants can enjoy a unique learning experience at KinderCamp, which includes language and math instruction in specially designed classrooms, followed by age-appropriate afternoon activities. New this year is an art and music program for grades 2-5, which will include an artist’s studio and an orchestra, a rock band and songwriting workshops.
Students in grades 6-12 will find a wealth of options at Harker’s Summer Institute, whether they are looking to get a head start on the school year or simply enhance their learning experiences outside the usual curriculum. Middle and high school students will have access to several for-credit courses in subjects such as algebra, geometry and economics. For-credit elective courses in programming and advanced programming are available to students in grades 9-12. Students interested in enhancing their knowledge of a specific subject will find opportunities in math, science, writing and more through the Summer Institute’s enrichment courses.
Harker’s world-renowned English Language Institute (ELI) brings top-level English instruction to international students every year. ELI is tailored to many skill levels and is designed to offer a nurturing environment to students looking to improve their language skills or prepare for admission to American boarding schools and English-speaking international schools. Small class sizes and experienced teachers help students develop speaking, reading and writing skills to ensure their readiness.
For student athletes, Harker’s sports camps are a great way to learn a new sport, prepare for an upcoming season or simply have fun on the field or in the gym. Harker’s experienced coaches will conduct camps for basketball, soccer, volleyball, water polo, wrestling and TRX training in a fun and positive environment. This year, The Harker School will also host a weeklong San Francisco Giants Baseball Camp at the middle school campus.
Finally, the Harker Swim School helps participants fully enjoy one of summer’s quintessential activities. Available to swimmers of virtually every age and skill level, the swim school teaches everything from basic strokes to advanced competitive swimming techniques, all at the beautiful Singh Aquatic Center on Harker’s upper school campus.
