Lots of learning happens here — but no academic-like instruction. Instead, think of it like this: the Longacre experience is a series of opportunities. The inherent flexibility means high-achieving students like yours can advance as fast as they want.
Students here are taking responsibility and developing new skills. Responsibility helps new students to feel included quickly.
Longacre is a student-driven program. This means that older, returning students in our Leadership Project set the pace.
Our campers are practicing direct communication. Four nights a week we gather together to reflect on the day.
Successful college students manage their independence responsibly. As a teenager, the earlier you practice your independence, the better. Here you will have more independence.
Longacre is college prep. We prepare students to get into college the old-fashioned way: by preparing them for success in college.
The answer is, it depends. It depends on whether the culture at the camp is growth-oriented.
There are three activity periods: morning, afternoon and evening. Each period you’ll have 8-12 options.
It’s important to understand, you won’t always get your first choice. We think about how our actions affect other people. Sometimes you’ll put your needs aside so your friend can get what she wants.
