This Religious Studies course will study architectural and interior design of Churches, Temples, Mosques and Gardens as places of prayer and worship from a variety of faith traditions. The experience will combine classroom research and presentations with field trips to various local ‘sacred spaces.’ Students will understand important stages in the history of sacred space, analyze the similarities and differences between Catholic and Protestant Church space, recognize and explain various architectural and interior elements of sacred space for Christian, Jewish and Muslim practice and evaluate the spiritual experience of gardens designed as sacred space.

0.5 semester credit, Fee: $350

June 23 (T) – July 23 (Th)

Tuesdays and Thursdays

Instructor:  Aaron Hazel

 

This course is designed to introduce students to a variety of physical activities aimed at developing their motor skills, while also building cardiovascular and muscular endurance. Students will engage in an active schedule that includes a personalized fitness program, personal activity & wellness log, as well as participate in weekly discussions centered around up-to-date research in the realm of personal wellness. This course will require active participation, individual determination, and a positive attitude.

 

 

NOTE:  For credit courses, it is important to remember that each four-week summer school course is equivalent to an 18-week semester course, thus workload needs to be commensurate with the credit being earned in this course.  Attendance at summer school is paramount to student success. 

 

Writing the College Application Essay

Open to incoming La Salle 12th graders

August 10 – 13, 9-11:30 am

Fee: $125

Instructor:  Monty Mickelson

 

The prospect of having to compose and submit a personal essay is, for many students, the most daunting aspect of the college application process. Introducing yourself—your very best self—in a mere 650 words (or less) may seem like the literary equivalent of building a ship in a bottle. Writing the College Application Essay helps demystify this process and alleviates much of the anxiety young writers often bring to this task. Using a workshop format, the class will review successful essays on a broad range of topics and styles. Students will brainstorm ideas, and then commence drafting a personal essay that conforms to one of the Common Application prompts. During a revision phase, students will edit for tone and content while preserving their own authentic voice.  

 

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and current state restrictions, athletic camps will not be available in June or July. We hope to offer camps in August as state and local authorities allow. More information to come.
