Here at Faith we feel it important to maintain our Montessori philosophy of education over the summer months while mixing in informative topics, arts and crafts, exciting outings, nature walks, and swimming trips. This sets our summer session apart from the regular school year and provides a ‘summer vacation’ feel to the program.
Our camp is made up of two week sessions of varying topics, and our field trips are planned accordingly. Last year, we rode the Amtrak train (right past our school!), ate at the Old Spaghetti Factory, visited the Botanical Gardens, watched a show at Bob Kramer’s Marionettes, received a backstage tour of the Fox Theatre, and made our own pizzas at Imo’s! Parents are always welcome to attend with us.
During these two week sessions we often host a guest speaker who is an expert in the area we are studying. These speakers give insights into their field and may even inspire future scientists, chefs, botanists, artists, and doctors!
Each week we attend Webster University’s pool to enjoy an hour of free swim. The director and lifeguards at the pool are experienced and attentive, so our teachers are able to enjoy swimming with the children.
Our summer program provides a wonderful balance of fun, relaxation, and learning!
