Be it a hobby, a fascination, or a future career goal, the Summer Enrichment Program at Rumson Fair Haven High School gives students the opportunity to hone their skills and dive deeper into the academic world of their choosing.  Although the prospect of going back to school over the summer may not initially seem appealing, the Summer Enrichment Program offers a unique learning experience without the stress of grades and with the added bonus of learning only what you sign up to learn.

There are many courses to choose from, created and crafted by the teachers you know and love. Don’t let the opportunity slide by! If you’re a student, don’t let everything you learned during the school year slip away during the summer; take advantage of this program and keep your brain active and your mind healthy.

All students of RFH are encouraged to take at least one course during the summer, as ultimately the student body makes the decision which courses will be taught. Each of the 16 listed courses cost $200, except for the Kaplan course which is $49.  Each course needs a minimum of 10 students to run. The courses will take place from July 9th to July 19th, Monday through Thursday from 9:00am to 11:30am.  If the number of students exceeds that which can be taken care of in one session, a second session will take place from 12:00am to 2:30pm.

These summer courses can serve as a good foundation for the continuation, or an introduction, to learning during the school year. They offer an Introduction to High School course for rising freshmen, a college application course – which was one of the most popular courses of last year- for any student that wishes to have the upper hand when applying to college.

If you don’t have a lot going on during the summer of 2012, why not advance your learning and give your brain a leg up at the summer courses? Each course is available to every student, and it’s up to you to decide which ones you can take. Don’t miss your opportunity, and join the wonderful teachers at RFH for the Summer Enrichment Program.
