In “Arete: An Introduction to the Classics,” authors of essential texts of Western civilization – Plato, Aristotle, Sophocles, Shakespeare, Faulkner, O’Connor – will be your teachers over the course of two weeks as you live on our Irving campus. Students view films, visit celebrated art museums and attend Shakespeare in the Park. You will develop and hone reading and writing skills essential for the college classroom while making the long and lasting friendships that inevitably develop in a learning community. Arete: An Introduction to the Classics July 12–25 – $ 1 ,500
Rome & the Catholic Church July 8-27, 2015 – $2,999 In “Rome & the Catholic Church,” enthusiastic and gifted high-school students will study classic works of the Christian tradition: St. Clement’s “Letter to the Corinthians,” St. Augustine’s “Confessions,” and St. Thomas Aquinas’ “Summa.” In Rome, you will walk the ancient roads Peter and Paul trod, celebrate Mass in the Basilica of St. Peter’s and listen to Pope Francis at a Papal Audience. Deepen your knowledge of the Catholic faith on an intellectual and spiritual pilgrimage you will never forget. Latin in Rome July 8-30, 2015 – $3,750 “Latin in Rome” seeks intermediate and advanced students of Latin who desire to refine and deepen their understanding of the language and the Romans who spoke it. Throughout the program, you will study passages from Cicero, Pliny, Virgil and Horace to enhance visits to sites in Rome and Naples. The program includes lectures by university faculty who have lived and taught in Rome, daily language tutorials and group discussions of texts, as well as visits to historical sites and museums. This 21-day program is not simply a summer tour, but a college-level Latin course. Shakespeare in Italy July 8-27, 2015 – $2,999 “Shakespeare in Italy” focuses on Shakespeare and the place that inspired him the most, Italy. You will study three of Shakespeare’s Italian plays (“Julius Caesar,” “The Taming of the Shrew” and “The Merchant of Venice”). Additionally, you will tour Rome most mornings with faculty guides and take a trip to Venice and Padua. Unlike most study programs, your classroom is Rome, as well as the other cities and sites you visit. The program helps students prepare for college through small group discussions and writing tutorials; students emerge sharper readers and more polished writers.
