Indian Creek's Summer Term 2020 is designed to provide students - both from ICS and other schools - the opportunity to connect, engage in learning, and strengthen academic and character skills that are so important for success in school and beyond. This season brings with it a unique challenge, as many camp programs have been canceled and the school year presented an unprecedented disruption.
Families seeking a summer experience which will engage students, keep them connected with peers, and bolster their academic foundation, through fun, safe, and inspiring programming will find what they're looking for in our ICS Summer Term program. From rising Kindergarten students through high school Seniors, Summer Term 2020 offers engaging courses in a blended learning format. Enrichment courses will encourage students to explore areas of interest, while Foundational courses strengthen academic readiness. Acceleration Courses will continue students' academic momentum, offering high school credit upon successful completion.
While there is a lot of uncertainty around COVID-19 and when/how social distancing restrictions will be lifted, we have designed the ICS Summer Term so that courses will run regardless of what happens.
Option 1 - Blended: If in-school gatherings are permitted, summer term courses will follow a blended learning model, with some face-to-face learning happening at the Upper School campus and some online learning happening at home.
Option 2 - Online: If social distancing restrictions remain enforced, courses will run entirely online with students and teachers connecting from home through both synchronous (video conferencing) and asynchronous means. Of course, engaging hands-on, off-screen learning will abound.
