Academic Opportunities for Personal Success

With an emphasis on character building and leadership skills, Academic OPS, held July 5- August 6, 2021 is an enriching way for teens to spend their summer. This five-week academic and outdoor program will challenge students in rising grades 7-12 in mind, body, and spirit. Whether the goal is to recover course credit or gain an advantage heading into the next school year, students will gain confidence in their chosen subject in a small class setting mentored by our caring faculty. For prospective students considering St. John’s Northwestern for the school year, Academic OPS is the perfect opportunity to experience campus life, what we have to offer, and meet current students.
