The 2021 Summer Program
CAN students attend the summer program on a Host School campus and participate in additional quarterly programs with CAN faculty and Peer Mentors throughout the school year.
Through a rich and interactive curriculum, the program is designed to inspire students to:
- Find joy in learning
- Develop a deeper understanding of their strengths and passions
- Acquire the academic and social skills and the self-efficacy necessary to succeed
- Discover the essential elements of their own moral compass, and the character and confidence to reach for their dreams.
- Connect with educators, Peer Mentors, and other students in a supportive community.
The program is designed for students in grades 6 through 8.
Each summer, CAN will offer engaging 4-week summer learning experiences that are academic, experiential, and practical.
CAN’s engaging curriculum includes enrichment activities in reading, writing, STEM, fine arts, civics, and personal development. CAN’s curriculum is designed by a team of experienced and dedicated educators to support student growth.
CAN’s summer programs are followed by quarterly gatherings during the school year with CAN faculty and Peer Mentors to provide one-on-one support, guidance and encouragement.
CAN’s program aims to provide educational enrichment, personalized support, guidance, and encouragement to support the students’ continued growth and development into more competent and confident individuals, students, and citizens.
CAN’s program is designed for students to return each summer. Participation throughout all of middle school maximizes the benefits of the program.
