Cincinnati, Ohio, April
20, 2018 – Although the school year is winding down at Saint Ursula
Academy, faculty and staff are gearing up for the 2018 SUA Summer Academy. From June 18-22, Saint Ursula is hosting the
annual Summer Academy, which invites 6th, 7th, and 8th
grade students to campus to participate in a variety of camps and explore their
passions and interests.
Many girls are exploring their creative side with offerings in
the visual, performing, and creative arts. On stage, DramaRama invites young
performers to participate in acting and musical theatre, while Grasp the Guitar
introduces music skills to girls who want to learn to play their favorite
songs. Campers in Artistic Exploration will take a field trip to the Cincinnati
Art Museum and create their own pieces, and the new Design Days session allows girls to
explore the world of fashion, graphics,
illustration, car design, interior design, web design, animation, and
architecture. Future novelists and poets at Write Away will exercise
their creativity and find their voices with
creative writing activities.
Also during the week, robots built and programmed by
participants in Robotics camp will be seen roaming Schott Hall. For 8th
graders, the High School Placement Test Prep Course is an opportunity to learn
test-taking tips, review concepts, and increase confidence for the upcoming
HSPT in November.
Additionally, there are many camps designed for those girls who
enjoy participating in athletics.
Softball, lacrosse, volleyball, tennis, basketball, soccer, and field
hockey sessions are held throughout the summer.
Whether students want to learn a new sport or practice their skills in a
sport which is familiar, the SUA Athletic camps are open to students of all
ability levels. Many of these athletic
camps are also open to girls younger than 6th grade.
