The Mounds Park Academy Summer Program offers enrichment classes in debate, speech,creative writing, science, math, fine arts, humanities, social studies and world languages. These courses offer an opportunity for students to be exposed to new ideas and to delve more deeply into things they are passionate about studying.


All of our courses use a variety of activities and modes of experiential learning to engage students in their learning. For instance, the aerodynamics and rocketry classes have students building and launching their rockets or planes to see how well their conjectures work. The speech and debate classes have students practicing their skills and evaluating each other on their presentation. The French and Spanish classes have students cooking, shopping and speaking in the target language. all of our classes are very active and engaging and the students generally come away with a love of learning and a lot of new information and skills. Each class runs for one week but students can participate for three different weeks.
