Morning Programs
Morning Programs

The Language Track is an intensive course that immerses students in their chosen language (English or French). Students are divided by age and ability (elementary, intermediate, or advanced) within each group. This program will also require students to do an afternoon club focusing on building their language skills.

The Academic Track is made up of three programs: the Makerspace Program, the Nature of Math Program, and the Unsolved Mysteries Program. Students can’t go wrong with their choice—each program offers the opportunity to problem solve, collaborate, and build new skills.

The Sports Track consists of two programs: Tennis and Mountain Leadership Development. Students in the Tennis program will engage in challenging and fun training on the court. Students in the LAS Mountain Leadership Development Program will learn about environmental sustainability and responsibility while developing leadership and communication skills through a variety of vigorous outdoor activities.
