St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute is offering two types of summer programming this year, both designed to introduce young men to our St. Joe's community of excellence.
Collegiate Summer! is a four-week program designed exclusively for students entering their eighth-grade year. The program runs from June 27 to July 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Collegiate Summer! keeps students' minds engaged with morning classes including reading, writing, mathematics, science, critical thinking and technology. In the afternoon, students will have opportunities to participate in group recreational activities using the outstanding St. Joe's campus facilities.
For the sports enthusiasts, St. Joe's will also offer baseball, basketball, football, hockey, lacrosse, soccer, track and field, and wrestling camps. For decades, the St. Joe's Marauders have been a dominant force in Western New York high school sports. With guidance from some of the top coaches and players in Western New York, the St. Joe's Summer Sports Camps will give participants a competitive edge and added confidence. Each sport camp has different age requirements and schedules.
Why choose our summer programs? St. Joe's, the region's premier Catholic, Lasallian, college-prep high school for young men, is enthusiastically committed to a high standard of excellence all year round. Our students are enrolled in an exceptional academic program that includes 18 Advanced Placement courses, honors courses and individualized enrichment opportunities. The rigorous St. Joe's curriculum, coupled with passionate teachers, prepares students for success at the finest colleges and universities.
Our track record of placing students in prestigious colleges and universities is impressive. Thus far, members of the class of 2016 have received acceptance to Princeton, Cornell, Notre Dame, Boston College, Brown, West Point, the U.S. Naval Academy and excellent regional institutions. The class of 2015 collectively earned $33 million in scholarships and merit-based awards, and the class of 2016 is expected to eclipse this total.
The St. Joe's experience creates gentlemen of integrity. Our mission is more than education. We play an instrumental role in helping a young man realize his unique potential, to develop his character and achieve success. Accepting an invitation to join our community enables a young man to join a spirited brotherhood that spans generations.
