Leelanau School Summer Academy


The Leelanau School Summer Enrichment Program brings experiential education and academic excellence to students entering grades 8 through 12. Students taking part in this program, which is located on the Crystal River within the 65,000-acre Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, hone their study habits while taking courses in traditional subjects, field biology, English, government, history, and math, as well as study skills and executive function courses. Boys and girls attend two classes per day, six days a week, during the course of the month-long program. Environmental awareness is an important aspect of the program, as pupils may engage in canoeing, kayaking, hiking, camping and visits to a local maritime museum.
