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 have a little responsibility. 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 leadership style emphasizes direct communication. Four nights a week we gather together to reflect on the day.
If you want to be successful as a young adult you have to learn independence as a teenager. It takes time to learn independence. The earlier you start, the better.
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 he wants.
