Summer programs at Episcopal School of Jacksonville are all about FUN and self-improvement!

Athletics and arts programs focus on the love of the activity, whether it be basketball, dancing, or fishing. And academic programs give students the opportunity to enjoy the subject matter at a relaxed pace, with fewer students and greater teacher attention.

The welcoming environment at Episcopal allows students and parents to focus on what is important: improving academics, athletics, and fine arts skills. The school prides itself on being a small, close-knit community that welcomes anyone to join us. Come play and learn with us this summer!

COVID Health and Safety Protocols

It will be a fun and safe Episcopal summer this year.

We are readying the campus for a return to activities starting June 1. When Governor DeSantis announces Phase 2 procedures for camps and schools, we will incorporate those guidelines into our current action plan for health and safety procedures. Ahead of the open of camp and class, we will announce the specifics of that action plan here and across Episcopal media. Given the openness and sizes of our campuses, we feel confident we can meet screening and group size requirements for a safe summer.

Academic Programs

JULY

The Holy Land: Then and Now

Munnerlyn Campus

July 6 - 16, Mon. - Thurs.
Grades: Rising 9 - 12
8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. - Cost: $550

This course, satisfying the Theology elective requirement, is provided as an alternative to the Holy Land experiential learning trip originally planned for the summer 2020. Any Upper School student is welcome to register for this fast-paced course. PLEASE note the dates and times as they differ from our regular summer course schedule.

In week one, students will study the Biblical Timeline. They will take a comprehensive look at the places and significance of the Holy Land, including the northern part of the country and the region of Galilee. Then students will then turn their focus on the significance of the sites in the area of Jerusalem and the southern part of Israel.

During week two, students will explore the history, cultural beliefs, and values of the Old Testament times to be able to better understand what is happening in the scripture. Revisiting the Biblical timeline, students will survey the individual books of the Old Testament and how they come together to tell the ONE story of God and God's people.

This course satisfies the .5 required credit for an elective in Theology. Students who have not taken Intro to Christianity would need to do so to complete the Theology 1.0 credit requirement.

Film Analysis

Munnerlyn Campus

Grades: Rising 9 - 12

In addition to learning the terminology of film-making, students examine films in a manner congruent with literary analysis, with the added features of sight and sound.

  • Take a deep dive into understanding the purpose and importance of the college essay
  • Analyze effective and ineffective example essays
  • Engage in creative brainstorming and self-reflection exercises to get more comfortable with writing about themselves and to uncover their unique stories and experiences
  • Draft outlines to address essay prompts
  • Generate rough drafts of their essays

Students will need to bring a laptop to each class, as well as their student resume/activities list (a template will be sent in advance to students who register for the class).

In medieval times, there were a huge number of engineering innovations. Crossbows, drawbridges, towers, cranes, the compass, and more were invented during those times. The lands then were ruled by feudal courts in a castle, with each castle having a great deal of land around it that was ruled by the lords and ladies of the castle. Because owning land meant more power, many lords and ladies went to battle with other lords and ladies, trying to take their castle and control their land. This led to many incredible devices being engineered, such as catapults. Students will be split into groups forming their own feudal court of lords and ladies. They will try to beat out the other teams in various challenges to show their prowess and be crowned kings and queens of the land with the Engineering for Kids Crown.
