Bright and early on a beautiful Monday morning, the Southwestern Academy staff members are ready with smiles on their faces to welcome some new and current students to their annual Summer Adventures program. Some students who attended the Summer Adventures program last year, returned again.

While getting the students settled and acquainted, teachers and staff members introduced themselves and went over what will occur over their Summer Adventure at Southwestern. Later on, they oriented the students around the surrounding areas such as Main Street in the city of Alhambra (near the girls’ dorm), Old Town Pasadena, the Westfield Santa Anita mall in Arcadia, and the city of San Marino.

trips that are both educational and fun (e.g. museums and amusement parks), daily sports and activities after classes, and meeting new friends from all over the world.

Summer Adventures program combines fun activities with getting an education. Southwestern Academy offers college preparatory courses and English as a Second Language program (ESL). Students can enjoy the summer while still having fun and obtaining graduation requirements. Summer Adventures is held on the San Marino campus for grades 6th -12th, and the Beaver Creek Ranch campus for grades 9th-12th. International and domestic students are all welcome to apply.
