Great Books Summer Program


With locations at Amherst College and Stanford University, participants learn how to read and analyze material at a college level; engage in active discussions; and develop their perceptual, critical-thinking and self-expression skills. Special guests, authors and educators join class discussions in each session. Sessions serve boys and girls in two age groups: the Intermediate Program (for children entering grades 6-8) and the Senior Program (for students entering grades 9-12).
