Dear list members,

I am trying to create a comprehensive list of summer classics programs for
high students, running the gamut from travel to archaeology, language,
literature, etc.

I have a pretty good handle on some programs: The Paideia Institute, Calder
Classics, and programs run by Dickinson, U. of Chicago, U. of Dallas, CTY,
even the CHS, etc., but any help would be appreciated. I have 47 Greek
students in my program right now, many of whom pursue Classics very
seriously in college, and any opportunity I can find to engage them in the
discipline in a meaningful way seems worth pursuing.

Sincere regards,

Please encourage your graduating seniors to attend any of the conventicula
that are offered. Even (or perhaps especially) for students without a
background in spoken Latin, these Latin immersion experiences are indelible
and profitable in a variety of ways.

The conventiculum in Kentucky with the Tunbergs may be more appropriate for
18 year olds because it is on a college campus and lends itself to a
collegiate atmosphere. The Rusticatio, nisi fallor, seem more for the 21+
crowd, not the least of reasons because the wine generally flows freely.

(This is my first post in this list, up to now I was subscribed only in Classicists (Liverpool) and Digital Classicists; I hope it arrives well)

There are several summer schools advertised here, in this link of the JACT:

Montclair State University has a lot of online Classics courses during
the summer, such as Roman Civilization, Myth, Troy and the Trojan war,
Women, Sex and Gender in Classical Antiquity, plus some special topics
courses and beginning Latin I and II. High school students can take
these courses too. -- Jean
