Student walking in the arcade

With the completion of today’s classes, we have just about reached the end of the 2016 High School Summer Program!

This morning students met for their last class on Euclid, where they confidently demonstrated Book I, Propositions 16, 29, and 32 for their classmates. Says Admissions Director Jon Daly, “This is one of the most studious groups we have ever seen. The tutors keep telling me how impressed they are with our students!”

After Mass and lunch, it was time for the last class of the program, during which students discussed Flannery O’Connor’s Everything That Rises Must Converge. The conversation focused on the symbolism of the story and its fraught relationship between a mother and her adult son, set amid the racial tensions of the mid-twentieth century American south. 

At the end of their classes, students received a few farewell gifts from the Summer Program staff, including a copy of C.S. Lewis’ Screwtape Letters, photos of their sections, and a framed photo of the entire group.

As this post is being written, the students are getting ready for tonight’s banquet, entertainment, and dance, with a video slideshow to follow. We will post pictures of tonight’s festivities — as well as tomorrow’s goodbyes — in the morning.
