The start of classes is an exciting time for Upper School students. There is no feeling quite like learning to sail for the first time or mastering the art of a musical instrument. Each class lasts 45 minutes. In a given summer, a typical class schedule will expose a student to more than 12 different disciplines. Whatever your interest, the Upper School class selection of over 75 different classes is sure to provide new experiences for every camper.
Each summer we have a few families who ask that we provide opportunities for their sons or daughters to spend time working on academic projects and/or athletic training assigned from their high school. We are happy to discuss the possibility of scheduling Independent Study or Independent Fitness classes in lieu of a class from the Culver curriculum. A proctor can be made available who will take class attendance and help facilitate the assignment, as needed. Students who select an Independent Study must provide what they will be working on during the assigned class period upon enrollment.
Upper School Class Offerings
The below list of classes is provided as an example of what Culver normally offers during the summer. While we expect nearly every class on this list to be offered, a few classes may not be offered in 2023 – and it would be equally likely that a few new classes will be added.
**Please note that classes listed above may change. An updated course catalog is available on the Summer Portal once your camper is enrolled. When choosing classes, please use the Course Catalog found on the Summer Portal.
