Summer Scholars

What’s different about MFS Summer Scholars? Our teachers. Our campus. Our attention to detail. Our personal touch. We don’t list courses and then hunt down college students to run them. We hire experienced teachers (MFS and area schools) who are certified in specific grades – many with advanced degrees – and challenge them to create a specialized curriculum just for the program. When teachers teach subject areas of passion, great things happen.

Summer Scholars classes have access to all the resources found during the school year at Moorestown Friends School. Technology is infused into many classes which makes for a fun and engaging classroom session.

Class sizes are never larger than 14 students. We get to know your child and work to provide the most meaningful and memorable experience possible.

Each day a Summer Scholars Community Building activity takes place as a way of celebrating our school’s Quaker values. Children see the rewards rooted in collaboration, support, teamwork, and self-awareness.

Summer Scholars programs are available for students entering Preschool-Grade 10. Scholars enroll in one-week courses exploring technology-infused academics in science, mathematics, arts, sports, and more! For program dates and costs for 2018, see here. Extended Day for before and after care is available too.
