Sequoyah School is debuting their uniquely layered summer program this year. After two years of planning, this immersive, creative summer program is enrolling children ages 5 to 15 from the Sequoyah and outside community.
Designed by educators, Summerhouse will offer a variety of free-choice activities every day, from 7:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., including art, science and cooking projects among others. Types of activities will change weekly to keep children engaged. Children may spend the entire day or drop in for a morning or afternoon. Groups of 8-10 students will be paired with their own Crew member.
In addition to these activities on campus, there will be walking tours to local sites.
“Pasadena is incredibly rich with learning opportunities and experiences,” said Kelsey Wetmore, director of the Sequoyah Summerhouse.
At Summer house, children ages 9 to 15 can also take more structured classes. These three-week classes and one-week intensives are designed to challenge our older students with engaging subjects and extended class periods to allow for deep summer learning.
“I think summer is a really great time to explore and dig deeper into something,” said Wetmore.
The Crew in Training Program gives children ages 12 to 15 the skills to work with children and serve as counselors for the Open Day program. Students apply to the program with an application that is similar to a college application and helps prepare students for job opportunities.
