Online Summer Learning
The W.I.S.E. program (Westminster Interactive Summer Experience) offers an exciting array of online courses for high school students. From the study of the Vietnam War, to literature and algebra, from Spanish and Chemistry, to learning techniques and computer science, the courses are designed to prepare students for the coming school year as well as stimulate their curiosity and develop study skills which will help them in all their future academic pursuits.
Westminster faculty will offer a slate of tutorial-style, non-credit courses. Students will engage directly with faculty each day for an hour and will receive feedback on their independent work, with an overarching goal of improving their critical reading, writing, and verbal skills. In many instances, the courses can provide a preview of the coming year or prepare for a specific standardized test or essay.
Class meetings take place online. The daily online meeting times will have flexibility, and the class teachers may provide a range of meeting times to help with planning purposes.
The 2020 complete course descriptions and a download link for the course catalog can be found on the right. Details for the 2021 courses will be posted in the spring.
