Summer Camps & Programs

Click here for information regarding athletic summer camp programs at SLUH.

St. Louis University High offers a wide variety of summer programs for both grade school and high school students. Summer programs include:

Upward Bound

An intensive full-day study with particular attention to study skills, serving boys in the summer between 7th and 8th grade. The program is not remedial, nor is it intended as enrichment.  We seek students who are willing to devote four weeks of their summer to improving their study skills. Some of our students are thriving in seventh grade and want to keep their skills active in the summer or want to test themselves with a challenging curriculum. Others are achieving less than they seem capable of and hope to become more successful students. All of our students, we hope, will become more purposeful about their studies.

For more information, you may download below the Upward Bound flyer and calendar and the form schools use to nominate students (Adobe Acrobat Reader is required). Or you may contact Mr. Chuck Hussung, Principal of Upward Bound, by e-mail at chussung@sluh.org or by phone at (314) 531-0330 x2010.

To let us know of your family’s interest in Upward Bound and receive e-mail messages about our admissions, please use the following link. This does not register your son for the program, but it does mean that we’ll send details about our informational meeting.

WalkAbout

Walkabout is an experiential, interdisciplinary program in reading, writing, art and science for young men who have completed sixth grade and has a special emphasis on inviting nominations of minority students. Students and teachers take field trips to natural areas every other day. They study plant and animal life in the field, make observations, take notes, and create artwork and essays based on what they experience. Students read and study a novel that fits the themes and activities of the program. They also experience musical units on Folk, Blues and Jazz and create music of their own. As with our Upward Bound program, we depend upon grade school principals and teachers to nominate the kind of student who will most benefit from the program.  For more information, contact Mr. Jim Linhares at jlinhares@sluh.org.
