MCI Summer Programs
Summer Credit Recovery allows students to make up work they may have missed or failed to complete in their core classes during the regular school year. Students needing to recover credit for Semester 1 come for the first half of the program to complete work their teachers have prepared for them, while the second half of the program is designated to Semester 2. Math and science courses are held in the morning, while humanities courses are held in the afternoon throughout the three weeks.
Bossov Ballet Theatre Summer Intensive provides comprehensive Russian training (Vaganova method) with a strong emphasis on technique, pointe, partnering, variation and character. Students must audition for acceptance into the program and can choose between a one-week program and a five-week program. This year, the one-week intensive program concludes with a demonstration open to friends and family, while the five-week intensive culminates in a full performance of Giselle.
Transitions Academy is a one-week program designed to support incoming freshmen in the transition to MCI. Students take math, English, and MCI orientation classes in the mornings; after lunch in the dining hall, the afternoon portion provides various “enrichments” opportunities for students to get to know other adults on campus and interact with each other on MCI’s campus before upperclassmen arrive. In past years these afternoon activities have included making movie trailers about MCI for peers who did not attend Transitions, developing and publishing a magazine about the incoming class and MCI, “upcycling” recyclables to make useful products, and learning hip-hop.
Summer Orientation and Language Immersion (SOLI) is a two-week required program at the end of August for international students new to MCI. Two course pathways better serve students in their individual English language proficiency, but all classes encourage student interaction with various participatory techniques. The SOLI Cup Competition, woven into classes and evening activities, fosters an atmosphere of English-speaking, of friendly competition, and of taking healthy risks. The program culminates in a combination talents celebration and awards ceremony to present the SOLI Cup to the winning squad.
