High School Camp Accelerate

Good Morning:
We are excited to announce Launching Into Success: Camp Accelerate for High School students.  Our first-ever high school enrichment camps offer a myriad of opportunities for students currently enrolled in 9th-12th grade (yes current graduates may attend). Students may choose from one of the four camps OR choose all four, the camps have been scheduled in such a way to allow students the ability to participate in all of them for FREE!
WHEN: July 6th through July 30th.
WHERE: Sites TBD based upon total registration numbers.
Please see the attached flyers and descriptions so students may know what each camp is about! Please help spread the word as these camps are out of this world!!!
Please Note: There is an additional registration link for both the NASA and Shell Camps. Please IGNORE the payment and shipping questions at the end of the NASA and Shell Camps. Normally, there would be a charge but St. Landry is covering the cost for their students so you should just hit "next" and move on.
  • College Prep Camp: College Prep Camp using Modern States is a way for students to earn real college credits, and potentially save tuition dollars, by passing tests offered by The College Board, which administers the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams in math, history, science and many other subjects. Students select the course they want to take. Courses will be facilitated by a St. Landry Parish School Board-certified teacher. If a student scores a 75% or better on coursework, the student will receive a CLEP voucher to take the CLEP test at no charge which may lead to college credit.  Hybrid--(in-person 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.: July 6th-9th and July 26th-30th; Virtual--(8:00 a.m.-9:15 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. July 12th to 23rd).
