Academy's 2003 Summer programme consists of a Core
programme of Ivy League university-preparatory
Academic & Literary English,
Mathematical & Statistical Sciences, Natural
& Biological Sciences. The Core programme,
offered during the Morning Half-Day (9 a.m. - 12 p.m.),
also integrates artistic, athletic and recreational
activities for both variety and synergy. Every Morning
Half-Day begins with an Academy-wide Assembly where
diverse educational goals are addressed either in
plenary or small-group sessions.
Comprised of significant mathematics and science components,
the Core programme is complemented by an array of
five liberal arts distribution Concentrations
that provide breadth of study and substantial cultural
French & Modern
Latin, Greek & Classical Studies,
History & International Relations,
World Cultures & World Religions,
Ethics, Philosophy & Moral Reasoning.
Concentrations are offered during the Afternoon Half-Day
(1:00 p.m. -4:00 p.m.) The combination of the Core
programme with any of the five Concentrations
ensures a balanced academic, artistic and athletic
curriculum for students enrolled in Full-Day programmes.
However, students who wish to continue to focus their
studies on the subjects encompassed by the Core programme
may enroll in the Full-Day Extended Core programme.
Students enrolling in Full-Day Terms of at least two
weeks in length are free to enroll in different Concentrations
for each weekly Session, though it is strongly recommended
that each Concentration be studied continuously for
at least two weeks to achieve greater disciplinary
depth. In all cases, however, a fundamental objective
of each programme, regardless of Term length, is to
stimulate serious study beyond the structured programme.
Academy 2003 Summer programme students may further
increase the challenge of their programme of study
in their chosen Concentration(s) by choosing from
one of two options. Those students who desire a Research
and Writing component that will require work to be
completed outside of the regular daily programme timetable
may choose the Scholar's Option.
Students who feel qualified to take on even greater
academic challenges may apply for admission to the
Elite Scholar's Circle. Scholar's
Option students may also apply for Directed Reading
and Research units in lieu of course components in
order to create an even more individualized and independent
programme of study.
In addition, Polemos Academy will be hosting the Freshman
JumpStart and Ivy
League Prep programmes sponsored by Polemos
Consulting in conjunction with the 2003 Summer programme.
The Centre for Classical and Modern Philology,
in collaboration with the Toronto branch of Berlitz®,
will also offer courses of study in no less than 15
classical and modern languages, available to all students
enrolled in the 2003 Summer programme.
