Applications are now open for Schola, an exciting new high school summer program at Belmont Abbey College taking place July 16 – 23, 2017.
Schola offers a unique opportunity to rising high school juniors and seniors to spend an elevating and revitalizing week engaged in a rich schedule of academic, cultural, and recreational activities centered on lively seminars discussing several of the great books of the Western world.
While living on Belmont Abbey’s beautiful, historic campus in North Carolina, attendees will enjoy a balanced mix of reading, seminars, relaxation, and conviviality. Mornings and early afternoons are devoted to small group seminars discussing works by masters of the Western intellectual tradition, including Plato, Shakespeare, Homer, St. Augustine, and Boethius.
Outside of class, participants enjoy daily sports and social events, visits to the celebrated Mint Museum in Charlotte, a staged reading of a Shakespeare play, hiking in the nearby Appalachian Mountains, white water rafting at the U.S. National White Water Center in Charlotte, as well as other social and recreational activities.
The program also offers opportunities and occasions for spiritual growth, including daily Mass and optional devotions.

St. Joseph’s is excited to announce that Christendom College will be offering five full scholarships for their 2017 Experience Christendom Summer Program. Students who will be entering their senior year of high school in the fall of 2017 (current high school juniors) are welcome to register for the Summer 2017 programs. Each year, hundreds of high school students spend a week on campus and describe the week as one of the best weeks of their lives, ranking it on average 4.75 out of 5 on a survey. Students spend their mornings taking a variety of liberal arts classes and spend their afternoons and evenings enjoying a number of recreational and social events. They will leave campus with a new appreciation for the liberal arts, Catholic culture, true friendship, and the beauty of God’s creation evidenced in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
