Summer Session 2019

The Bishop’s School Summer Session provides both Bishop’s and San Diego-area families with a variety of classes for students in pre-grades 4-12 in a safe and caring environment just a short walk from the beach. We offer courses for credit, preparation, review and enrichment through project- and inquiry-based activities and STEM/STEAM options taught by experts in their fields. Elementary and middle school students can enroll in a maximum of four classes or, combined with the summer athletics program, build an entire well-balanced day. We make education exceptional, inspirational, relevant and fun!

    The tuition for each enrichment class in the Academic Adventures (pre-grades 4-5) and Academic Explorations (pre-grades 6-8) programs is $225 for one class per two-week session. If a student enrolls in multiple classes per session, the total tuition is discounted: First class $225, second class, $130, third class, $105 and fourth class $55. All students must pay the $75 administrative fee in addition to the class tuition. A limited amount of financial aid is available for qualified students in pre-grades 4-5.

    We will make every effort to enroll a student in the requested section of the class, e.g., morning or afternoon for health and religion classes. However, for classes with high enrollments, we cannot guarantee placement in the requested section. Classes with low enrollment are subject to cancellation, and students will be offered other options.

    CANCELLATION POLICY
    All courses are subject to adequate enrollment. A 100 percent refund, including the $75 administrative fee, will be made for withdrawals due to cancelled classes unless a student enrolls in a substitute class. The administrative fee is only refunded if there are no classes taken. Students will be offered other options. Registration remains open until courses are filled. However, no refunds will be given if a student withdraws from a course or cancels their enrollment less than three weeks prior to the start of the course.

    WITHDRAWAL FROM A FOR-CREDIT COURSE
    A student may withdraw from a for-credit course at any time. However, both tuition and the $75 administrative fee will be forfeited. Students have one week after the start of the course to withdraw without a transcripted record of enrollment, unless otherwise approved by the director. If a student withdraws after one week of classes, then the School will transcript a WP, withdraw passing, or WF, withdraw failing. In classes where the School forces a withdrawal due to excessive absences or inappropriate behavior, no transcripted record will be noted.

    *Indicate preferred time on the registration form.
    **Preferred section cannot be guaranteed.
    This course introduces the many writings compiled into the Bible over a millennium. Because a semester is too short to read the Bible in its entirety, selected texts and narrative themes will be examined. Students will be exposed to the literary genres, forms and motifs which comprise these writings. The texts are placed in the historical, cultural and sociological milieu of their audience. Students learn a variety of techniques which are helpful in the analysis of Biblical texts; these techniques include analysis of form and structure, as well as genre, historical and redaction criticism. Students are encouraged to put knowledge to use as they find Biblical overtones and references in history, politics, ethics, art, literature and film. Note that this is an intensive course, and students must devote time outside of class to prepare and review.
     
    Philosophy of Human Rights (grades 10-12)
    12:30 - 4:30 p.m.|$1,570
    Prerequisite: Introduction to Biblical Literature
    In this applied philosophy course, students use the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948 as a way of connecting pressing contemporary issues with a broad range of philosophical ideas and controversies, drawn from multiple traditions and many centuries. We will explore some of the most important, searching questions: "Who am I? Why am I here? What is the right thing to do? What does it mean to live a “good life?”Do I have rights and responsibilities? How can rights be enforced? The topics explored in this class are at the center of great philosophical, political and ethical debates today concerning the role of government, the rights of the individual, national security in an age of terrorism, and the competing interests of diverse cultures in a globalized world. Using the lens of philosophy to examine human rights, students become acquainted with rudimentary aspects of philosophical analysis, and acquire the intellectual skills and tools necessary for understanding some of the most pressing human rights issues facing the world today − issues that will continue to shape public debate, nationally and globally, through the early decades of the 21st century. This course aims to be richly interdisciplinary, introducing not only basic philosophical concepts and forms of reasoning and argumentation, but also incorporating models and methods from diverse fields including history, journalism, literary criticism, media and cultural studies, biology, anthropology, psychology and religious studies.
     
    The Prophetic Voice (grades 10-12)
    Pre-requisite: Introduction to Biblical Literature
    8 a.m. - 12 p.m.|$1,570
    According to Abraham Joshua Heschel, author of one of the most authoritative scholarly works on the Biblical prophets, the prophet is one who “sees the world with the eyes of God,” whose major activity is interferencewith the status quo for the sake of justice and righteousness, and who “speaks one octave too high” for the comfortable listening of most. Beginning with an exploration of the Biblical model of prophecy, this course quickly moves to primary and secondary readings of contemporary prophetic voices in our world and an examination of the violation of human rights they address, including economic justice, hunger and oppression. Among the voices heard are those of Mohandas Ghandi, Desmond Tutu and Malala Yousafzai. Note that this is an intensive course, and students must devote time outside of class to prepare and review.
     
    Summer on Stage (grades 8-12)
    12:30 - 3:30 p.m.|$1,335
    This intensive and immersive theater workshop provides an opportunity for students to develop and hone their skills for both acting and directing, including character development, staging, budgeting, set and costume design, and collaboration with other members of the cast and crew. The experience allows students more stage time in front of and behind the curtain to prepare for future auditions at Bishop’s and beyond. The workshop culminates in a performance similar to Shorts offered during the regular school year. This course is available to rising eighth- through twelfth-graders.

    Visual Arts Studio (grades 9-12)
    8 a.m. - 12 p.m.|$1,595 (includes supplies fee)
    This course allows students flexibility in creating art in a fun, relaxed environment. Open studio access, a wide range of supplies and personalized instruction by Bishop’s visual arts teacher Ms. Elizabeth Wepsic make this course a unique opportunity to receive credit for one semester of visual arts: Drawing and Painting 1, 2, or 3 and Stained Glass 1, 2, or 3. Students choose from a variety of topics in arts, including (but not limited to) street art and the development of art portfolios.

Bishop’s students must receive permission from the world languages department to enroll in this course. Non-Bishop’s students must check with their home schools to determine whether credit will be given.

    Spanish 1: This course is ideal for rising ninth- or tenth-graders who have some preparation in Spanish and want to tackle Spanish 2 in the fall. Taught primarily in Spanish, the course introduces material thematically, treating topics related to personal identify, family, school, pastimes, shopping and travel. Students will speak and write using the present and present progressive tenses, descriptive adjectives, indefinite and negative words, reflexive verbs, object pronouns and simply past tense. 
     
    Spanish 2: This course is designed for students who want to accelerate through the Spanish program or for those who benefit from focused, single-subject study. Taught primarily in Spanish, the course introduces material thematically, treating topics related to the home, health and well-being, technology, nature and the environment and city life. Students will speak and write using verbs in the present, past, future, conditional, the present and past perfect tenses, and the present subjunctive as they explore the various themes and topics in Hispanic culture. Successful completion of the course prepares students for Spanish 3.
     
    Spanish 3: This course is a good alternative for students who want to accelerate through the Spanish program or for those who would benefit from a focused, single-subject course. The course introduces material thematically, thoroughly developing topics from earlier years, such as interpersonal relationships, sports and entertainment, health, travel, the environment and technology. Students speak and write reviewing the verbs they learned previously in addition to the subjunctive in adjective and adverbial clauses. Students have the opportunity to write original narratives in the past tenses, deliver oral presentations and engage in sustained conversations related to course topics. Students who successfully complete Spanish 3 as a second year of language study in upper school will have fulfilled their Bishop’s graduation requirement in world languages. These students are eligible to enter Spanish 4 in the fall.

Exploring the natural world in person supplements activities and investigations done in the classroom.
     
    Who am I? (grades 6-8)|$225 
    Students explore their identities—who they are and who they will grow up to be—through literature. Students begin this exploration by reading age-appropriate books and articles to introduce readers to the world, either as a mirror: to show characters in situations similar to their own; a window: to show them difference experiences from afar; or a door: inviting them to experience situations outside their own, with an eye toward diversity. This engaging course provides students with an opportunity to create their own stories to reflect their unique experiences and perspectives.
