Summer Boarding

English Language and Leadership

GirlSummer English Language and Leadership

The sought-after choice for the non-native English speaker looking to strengthen fundamental English communication skills, prepare for interviewing, and gain necessary skill development for the TOEFL and SSAT. Focus will be paid to speaking, listening, reading, writing, interview, and presentation skills in English both in the Morning Immersion and throughout the girl’s GirlSummer experience. Each girl should come with the intention to gain confidence and correctness in speaking English while building her leadership skills.

Each girl will immerse herself in courses that enhance her skill development and gain practice with interviewing and presenting herself. Our long-time partnership with an accredited team of teachers work with the girls in groups of 5-6, thereby creating a truly personalized, attentive program. Daily interaction with native speakers and afternoon, evening, and weekend linguistic and cultural activities, will enable each girl to gain confidence and proficiency while having fun with other girls from around the world (girls join us from five continents and across the United States).
