Great Books Summer Program


If you are a reader, Great Books Summer Program is offering some AMAZING opportunities for students!

"Now in its tenth season, the Great Books Summer Program gathers every year on two of the most prestigious college campuses, specifically to serve and challenge outstanding middle school and high school students from across the country.  For 2013, we will also be premiering our program on the Oxford University campus in England.  Students will come away from the Great Books Summer Program with a bigger intellectual world, sharper critical thinking skills and a deep connection with other remarkable young people preparing to lead lives of distinction.  This summer we'll continue to take up the Great Conversation of classic literature, with a broad range of texts and and an emphasis on the timeless questions: What is the good life? What do I owe my neighbors? What must I do in the face of injustice? We'll be reading and talking about Homer, Plato, Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, Dante, and a dozen other giants of the human mind."
