Parker’s Summer Program Offers Enriching Adventures

By Kevin Yaley

Imagine a summer immersed in learning and discovery: Students preparing fine cuisine with farm fresh ingredients; Others honing their athletic skills under the sponsorship of Nike or learning jazz music skills from recognized local artists. Imagine all this and more.

At Francis Parker School, it is our goal to inspire excellence. Students in the Parker Summer Program spend their time pursuing passions, exercising their bodies and preparing for academic success.

Now, 55 years strong, the Parker Summer Program makes the long break both fun and enriching. This year is shaping up to be our finest summer yet. And the best part about it? It’s open to all San Diego students in Kindergarten to Grade 12.

Younger students can develop their technology skills with robotics and computer programming. High school students can take academic courses for credit, attend SAT boot camp or try their hand at stone carving or ceramics.

Because a sound body makes for a sound mind, this year’s program features sports camps directed by Nike, Top Gun Basketball and Creative Skills Soccer. We’re also pleased to introduce new two new sports camps this year — Squash Camp for Beginners and Sports for Life: Getting Fit, Staying Fit.

For aspiring jazz musicians, Parker is offering one-week workshops for middle and high school students. Jazz artist/instructors will foster students’ creativity and polish their performance techniques. The Jazz 88.3 FM Summer Jazz Workshop presented by the House of Blues ends with a student performance at San Diego’s House of Blues.

So if you’re looking for a rewarding, enriching experience for your students, consider the Parker Summer Program.
