NEW **INTRODUCING for the 2022/2023 program year:

Summer Academy: June 20 – 24, 2022
8:30 AM – 3:00 PM

Youth will be grouped in the grade level they will enter for fall 2022. Curriculum will be taught in a theme-based setting, two themes per day. Throughout the week, youth will break-out for music class, art, service projects, Adoration, Mass and Reconciliation. Lunch on the lawn and fellowship will become memorable events. This summer day-camp style format will help youth bond and connect with their Catholic peers in a way that the traditional school-year, homework/sport-filled schedule sometimes challenges. Registration will begin in January 2022.
