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, four-week summer program for boys who have completed the 7th grade. The Upward Bound curriculum focuses on writing skills, mathematics and time management with particular attention to study skills. The program serves boys between 7th and 8th grade whose teachers and test scores suggest that they could be achieving better grades. 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 and who are likely to enroll in a college preparatory curriculum but are not currently achieving their potential.

For more information, download the Upward Bound flyer, nomination form and calendar below (Adobe Acrobat Reader is required), or contact Mr. Chuck Hussung, Principal of Upward Bound, by e-mail at or by phone at (314) 531-0330 x2010.

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
