We're back--and we've grown!
All of the anticipation and planning have led to this: our second year of top-notch, intensive summer enrichment programming for highly-motivated middle school boys. We have a stellar faculty & staff; rich co-curriculars & exciting field trips; and Baltimore's best & brightest students (50% more students than in our inaugural year, in fact!).

Every single boy challenged himself--and exceeded his own expectations. In the process, we laid the foundation for the educational philosophy that guides our approach to work in--and outside--the classroom.
Of course, we also had a blast. The pictures speak for themselves:
Working together to shape the kind of community we want to share--and beginning our work in the classroom...
...oh, and: a scavenger hunt.
