The St. Stephen’s Summer Spanish Boot Camp is a 4-week long intensive immersion experience designed to give middle school students an opportunity to boost their performance level and reinforce the various skills needed for the next level of Spanish (specifically SPN 1B, SPN II, and SPN III).
Students attending should fall under one or more of these categories:
Interest in furthering their SPN to a higher level via intensive work
Have currently met academic expectations, but may show signs of struggling at next level of Spanish
Have not met academic expectations, but desire to progress to next level of Spanish
Show interest in cultural/service experiences in the target language
Throughout the week students will engage in activities and dialogue to strengthen areas of needed improvement while also furthering their confidence using the target language. Students will partake in a diagnostic so as to determine strength areas and areas of improvement.
So that students are further engaged, projects will be created and cultural immersion trips will also be established to distinct areas of Austin and neighboring communities. Throughout the camp students will also be able to prepare for various Spanish assessments before making the decision to be assessed on previously determined areas of weakness. It is the hope that this program may provide a strong Spanish foundation for all students. It also should create an overall experience that would allow transitioning to a higher level of Spanish.
Dates: June 5th - July 2nd (Weekly options are also available).
