Moorestown Friends Summer Scholars
Moorestown Friends Summer Scholars
Ages: Preschool through Grade 10
Moorestown Friends School offers a variety of summer enrichment opportunities for students in Preschool through Grade 12. MFS Summer Scholars have the opportunity to further personal interests by participating in a wide variety of unique courses related to technology-infused academics in science, history, mathematics, arts, sports, politics, and more! There are five age divisions within Summer Scholars: Tot Scholars, Mini Scholars, Youth Scholars, Junior Scholars and Senior Scholars.
Tot Scholars (Grades PS-PK) was created in 2016 to welcome our very youngest children to the MFS campus. The programming set by our own MFS Early Childhood Development teacher supports the natural pace of learning for children this age. Children will engage with topic-based themes at an age-appropriate pace, while also fostering relationships with peers and adults in the classroom. The curriculum balances subject-based learning alongside other integral components of an early childhood education, such as dramatic play, building, music, literature, and art. Our program is designed to fuel the natural curiosity of children and support independent decision making, all while supporting them in a caring, nurturing environment.
Mini Scholar (grades K-1) participants have many choices, morning and afternoon this year. We are excited to offer advanced programming for these advanced little ones! The combination of Kindergarten and first graders allows children and teachers to maximize all the benefits of a mixed-age classroom. Experienced elementary teachers focus their teachings while exposing children to a unique responsive classroom experience. Though each week’s class has a content focus, children will continue to learn throughout the day while interacting with others, communicating, and cooperating. Morning AND afternoon class choices are available!
Youth Scholars (grades 2-3) was newly created in 2018 to break up the large age range in Juniors Scholars. This allows us to build curriculum more appropriate for 2nd and 3rd graders without sacrificing quality and specificity. This phase of development and growth in the elementary years requires engagement and hands-on projects within the day so that learning and fun can be woven into each class. Master teachers plan class topics that stem from their own talents and passion. The difference is shown in exceptional classroom management, creative engagement, and unique problem-solving with students self-directing much of their achievements. Morning AND afternoon class choices are available!
Junior Scholar (grades 4-6) participants are now a smaller more sophisticated age group of 4th - 6th graders. This specialized age range allows teachers to better serve their interest and allow teachers improved curriculum planning. This phase of development and growth requires hands-on projects within the day so that learning and fun can be woven into each class. Master teachers plan class topics that stem from their own talents and passion. The difference is shown in exceptional classroom management, creative engagement, and unique problem-solving with students self-directing much of their achievements. Morning AND afternoon class choices are available!
Senior Scholar (grades 7-10) participants enjoy many advanced class options with teachers working across various disciplines such as the sciences, liberal arts, and more. Technology is the universal language! Everyone learns from each other through team projects and group work. This age group needs to be challenged and that’s what will happen on a daily basis. Master teachers plan class topics that stem from their own talents and passion. The difference is shown in exceptional classroom management, creative engagement, and unique problem-solving with students self-directing much of their achievements.
Additionally, we have some specialized classes for our Senior Scholar age group:
Scuba Diving Certification
College Art Portfolio Preparation
At MFS Summer Scholars, learning and fun go hand-in-hand. Whether you choose a full day for your child or a half day, one-on-one and small group activities will stimulate growth in resilience and resourcefulness. A small portion of the day will include a Quaker Community Building activity (QCBA) which reflects an important part of the Moorestown Friends’ educational philosophy.
LEAP stands for Learning Extended - Achieve and Progress
Students from MFS and all over South Jersey can reap the rewards of a number of different offerings intended to help “bridge the gap” between June and September. Summer learning loss is real.
