Summer English Immersion Schedule

The Summer English Immersion program at George School welcomes students 12 to 14 for a three-week program that includes intensive English language instruction, cultural and social activities, and personalized support to help them develop the academic language skills to succeed in English-speaking high school programs. Our faculty provide ample opportunities to solidify what is learned in class with on-hands, co-curricular activities.

Here is an overview of a sample daily schedule with some activities that your student will enjoy:

Mondays – Thursdays
Students spend the morning in English classes immersed in academic writing, and grammar, listening and speaking, and reading and discussion. Afternoons include on-campus and local activities such as sports, kayaking, biking, games, arts and crafts, and trips to local shopping. Students can sign up for various activities and will be encouraged to try different things. Study periods are scheduled in the evenings and are monitored by faculty so students can complete assigned homework.

Fridays
Fridays are dedicated to local excursions including trips to historical sites, museums, and the zoo in Philadelphia and visits to nearby Princeton University and the University of Pennsylvania.

Saturdays
Saturdays include trips to farther destinations such as New York City and nearby museums, amusement parks, beaches, and sporting events.

Sundays
Sundays are a day to rest with the opportunity to enjoy local activities such as mini-golf, ice skating, and watching movies together, as well as time for students to prepare for their classes the coming week.
