    The Summer Accelerate and Recover Academic Camp at St. Thomas More School combines academics with summer recreational activities. Our summer program is designed for students ages 14 - 18 to make-up/retake courses from the previous year or to start next grade level courses over the summer.

    The Summer Academic Camp at St. Thomas More School

    • Retake courses where you underperformed or start your fall program early.
    • Develop critical thinking, study skills, reading comprehension, time management, and perseverance!
    • Work with a personal advisor to identify strengths and weaknesses.
    • Set academic and personal goals for the summer and beyond.

    The summer program has the use of all facilities of St. Thomas More School. Classes are held in the three classroom buildings that include science laboratories, a language laboratory, a computer room and library. Three modern dormitories provide housing and all students share double rooms. Teachers live in the dorms to provide supervision.

    The school's 100 acre campus enjoys 4,000 feet of waterfront on Gardner Lake. The boathouse holds kayaks, canoes, sailboats and rowboats for recreational use. Many campers enjoy the high-quality fishing in the lake that is stocked annually. Recreational facilities include a gymnasium with a basketball court and a twenty-station weight room equipped with Nautilus machines and free weights. The gym also provides a student lounge with ping-pong and pool tables and two TVs with video games. Other outdoor facilities include a track, two soccer fields, two baseball diamonds, a lacrosse field, four outdoor tennis courts and six outdoor basketball courts.

On Sundays there are full-day trips to a range of events and activities including Six Flags New England, Water Country USA, Boston, Lake Compounce Amusement Park, whale watching, New England Revolution soccer games and Ocean Beach Park.
