English Language & American Culture

June 28 – July 25

During Besant Hill School’s Summer Institute, students will advance their acquisition of the English language through reading engaging, academic short stories, contemporary articles, and learning academic writing. They’ll further develop their understanding of English grammar mechanics and learn new vocabulary and idiomatic expressions. Additionally, the stories and articles they read will help them gain insight into American culture and US history. Higher-level students will also practice oral fluency and critical analysis by participating in formal class discourse. The pace of the summer course is college preparatory and students will be expected to complete thirty minutes of homework each night.

In addition, the Institute provides opportunities to have fun and experience American culture. Outside of classes, students and faculty play sports and travel throughout Southern California—from Ojai to Santa Barbara to Los Angeles, and many places in between.

Activities Include:

  • Weekly Field Trip
  • Morning Academics
  • Afternoon Arts (Visual Arts & Music)
  • Los Angeles Excursion
  • Amusement Park Visit
