The nation’s most popular, well-attended, and highly ranked pre-college summer program broke all of its previous records by enrolling 60% more students than last year. By the conclusion of the summer, over 280 high school students will have taken part in the Experience Christendom Summer Program held over 6 one-week sessions during June and July.
“We’ve experienced waiting lists year after year for the program in the past, which is why we added two extra sessions this summer. Even with all of the additional space, applications were still up, and we had a waiting list too. Clearly, students can’t wait to experience what Christendom has to offer,” says director of admissions Sam Phillips.
“Once again, our reputation as the best program of its kind has proven true. We refer to the program as the ‘best week ever’ for a reason — it’s what attendees consistently say in their exit surveys,” says Phillips.
The second session of the program is in full swing right now, and the program’s staff anticipates the same great reviews that they received from the first session.
“This [program] was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had,” said Carlos Pardo, who came to the program all the way from an Opus Dei all-boys high school in Mexico City. Margaret Howerton, who came from Pennsylvania, agreed enthusiastically with Carlos.
“I will always remember how much fun, wonder, and excitement I experienced this week. Everyone who put it together is awesome!” said Howerton.
Participants from the first session were asked to rate the statement, “I enjoyed my summer program experience,” at the end of their week at Christendom, and the overall response was an unprecedented 4.94 out of 5 — a new record of popularity for the Experience Christendom Summer Program.
The highly acclaimed program will welcome more students to Christendom’s Front Royal, Va. campus over the coming four weeks, offering all of them a unique educational, cultural, spiritual, and amazingly fun experience.
