Lectures and seminars will take place during the day from approximately 9 am until 2 pm. Please know that upwards of 200 journalists from around the world will participate.

 

  1. University of California at Davis (UC Davis), June 19th - July 16th.

 

UC Davis students range in age from 18-22.  While their academic program focuses on "Rome as the classroom," their more general goal is to enjoy three weeks of Italo-Romano cultural immersion.

  1. The Paideia Institute's Living Latin in Rome, July 1st - July 19th.  

 

This is a very intensive Latin study course designed for high school students.  All classes and social events are conducted in Latin. The program of study culminates with an evening of student performances.  Last summer's performances consisted of myths selected from Ovid's Metamorphoses.

 

 It's a very enjoyable way to spend part of a summer evening.

 

  1. Arts and Humanities, July 22nd - August 4th.

 

This description from our website says it all:

 

The 2018 Arts & Humanities Program dates: July 22 - August 4, 2018
Our program is open to students 13 - 18 years of age

 

Summer 2018 core courses feature Renaissance Art, and Ancient Roman Topography (a St. Stephen's School signature course). Both courses are held on-site in the city of Rome, allowing students to visit the significant monuments and sites in person, and to attain an in-depth knowledge of the city for the period in question. Students also enroll in a language course, either Italian or Latin.

 

The 2018 elective courses will include Creative Writing and 2D/3D Studio Art. Student exhibitions and special performances will be held at the conclusion of the summer school session. A trip to Pompeii and other sites in the south of Italy is also included.

 

This session also includes an evening Cultural Program with events held on-site around the city of Rome, such as the opera and other musical and theatrical performances where the backdrop is Rome itself, outings to important landmarks in the city opened for special evening visits and excursions to different neighborhood and ice cream shops (gelaterie) in Rome.

Sign Up for SAT and PSAT Summer Prep Courses!

PSAT & SAT Prep Courses are Available Over the Summer at St. Stephens with Jen Hollis!

Monday, June 19 – Thursday, June 29

 

Before you escape for your summer destinations, consider joining our SAT course.

 

We will meet at St. Stephen’s campus every afternoon from Monday the 19th of June through Thursday the 29th of June.

 

The course will begin with a diagnostic test covering all sections. Each student’s beginning score range will be determined, and we will discuss how the performances match up to the requirements of those colleges to which each student hopes to be admitted. Thereafter, class time will be devoted to learning the test-taking strategies and tactics specific to each section. The remainder of the course will involve practising these strategies; identifying individual strengths and weaknesses; developing skill sets both independently and through collaboration, and becoming familiar and comfortable with the internal logic of the test.

 

These aims will be accomplished by taking, reviewing, and discussing practice sections at every meeting. We will conclude with a second diagnostic exam followed by advice for your preparation going forward.

 

As an instructor, I bring eight years of experience working as an SAT teacher for St. Stephen’s and as a private tutor. I’ve witnessed, and am confident in, the improvement that can be attained through disciplined study and practice.

 

The fee for the course is 530 Euros. Contact me directly via e-mail to register: jen.hollis@sssrome.it
