Registration for Waynflete’s Summer Academic Term is now underway! Students in rising grades 1-12 can find opportunities to strengthen their skills, engage their curiosity, or move them forward in their coursework. In addition to our own classes offered on the Waynflete campus in-person or through real-time online connections, we’re also pleased to be partnering with our friends at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School where students can enroll in a selection of online-only classes.
Learn more about two of the many different courses we’re offering this year:
Ready, Set, Go! A fun reset for Math and Literacy skills
If the past year of online remote learning has left your younger students feeling disengaged or behind on the basics, then Waynflete’s Summer Term has a solution. Our team of instructors and academic support professionals have put together several class offerings for rising grade 1-6 students to help tune up their math and literacy skills. Students can join us in person (with online options available) for several fun yet focused classes that will leave them feeling reenergized and ready to start school again in September.
The Layered City—Rethinking Monuments
One of the most exciting things about Waynflete’s Summer Term is the opportunity to collaborate with teachers and students from outside the Waynflete community. This summer we’re partnering with teachers Andrew Harrison and Remy Mansfield from Friends Seminary School in NYC to offer the class The Layered City—Rethinking Monuments.
This online class for high school students anywhere in the world offers the opportunity to examine students’ home communities through a hands-on, experiential approach to examining the monuments that mark a wide range of public spaces around us. Students will be out and about exploring their own neighborhoods and towns using digital storytelling practices to create photo essays, audio stories, and short films that interrogate our use of public spaces, monuments, and the stories these places tell with a critical and artistic lens focused on the the stories that are not told as a result of gender, race, class, and economic status.
