Translating The Prep Summer Experience Into Online

“Summer should be a little bit of an adventure for kids and for everyone,” says Flintridge Prep’s Drama teacher Jennifer Bascom. If you’re looking for some adventure, why not take Ms. Bascom’s improv and sketch comedy writing classes through their online Summer@Prep program? All of the online courses are taught by Prep faculty, like Ms. Bascom, who know how important it is to embrace their students holistically. “My goal for the improv classes is to make them laugh, first and foremost,” Ms. Bascom says. “I want to create a playful and social mindset, to get them to laugh, do physical work like warmups and games and a lot of meditation work.” She’s incorporated several techniques to help break down the distance, including show-and-tell activities to introduce pets, siblings, or treasured objects.

Prep’s summer program Summer@Prep is now online, offering its largest selection ever of fun and for-credit courses which will be taught by the same outstanding Prep faculty. This summer’s program offers for-credit online classes like Algebra 2 and Digital Video, as well as Make Your Own Food Network Show, Audio Production for Podcasts and Radio, Improv and Sketch Writing, Creative Writing, the Art of Poetry, and more.
