Tarleton State University is set to launch its first-ever summer Classical Academy on June 5.
Part of the College of Liberal and Fine Arts slate of summer offerings, the day camp is geared toward fourth through 12th grade students
“We have seen an increase in the number of students at Tarleton who are coming from schools with a classical education focus,” said Dean of the College of Liberal and Fine Arts Dr. Eric Morrow.
“This connects well with our Honors College and communicates how a classical education can be continued at Tarleton through our core curriculum areas.”
The immersive art and humanities classes are designed to enhance learning by inspiring critical thinking and teaching effective communication with an emphasis on civic education.
“Students who love to learn will enjoy engaging in classes they may not normally be able to attend during the school year,” said summer camp director Prudence Jones.
Classes are still being finalized but are expected to include:
• Digital Audio
• Digital Media
• Introduction to Japanese
• Theatrical Design
• Writers Workshop
More information on this summer event will be announced soon.
