‘Experience Christendom College’ Summer High School Program

Described as a “unique educational, cultural, spiritual, and amazingly fun experience,” Christendom College’s summer program for rising high school seniors is open for registration, according to the College’s website.

Every year, more than 200 high school students spend a week at Christendom College in Front Royal, Va., and “leave campus with a new appreciation for the liberal arts, Catholic culture, true friendship, and the beauty of God's creation evidenced in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.”

The College reports:

Students spend their mornings taking a variety of liberal arts classes (Philosophy, English, History, and Theology), then, after Mass and lunch, students spend their afternoons and evenings enjoying a number of recreational and social events. Activities generally include: canoeing on the Shenandoah River, hike and cookout on Skyline Drive, swing and contra dancing, making smores over a bonfire, bowling, participating in a talent show, eating a steak dinner at the Admissions Director’s house, and attending an Irish barn dance at College President Dr. Timothy O’Donnell’s house. These activities are absolutely amazing and show the participants that you can still have good old fashioned fun in a safe, moral, and Catholic environment!

In past years, there has been a waiting list for the program.  Please see the College’s website for registration information.

Christendom also offers a summer study abroad program in Ireland for undergraduate students from any university.

Christendom College is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
