Students arrive Sunday afternoon August 11 between 6:00 and 7:00 p.m. for check-in and orientation. Meals begin with Monday breakfast so make sure your student has had dinner before arriving for check-in. Classes will begin on Monday and continue through Friday. Each student's daily schedule includes three one and a half-hour classes plus special presentations. Latino Academy students choose course offerings from humanities, mathematics, science, social studies, fine and performing arts, and cultural classes. After-class programs coordinate with in-class activities to include supervised recreation as well as cultural events. Departure is Saturday, August 17.
A highly qualified administrative and residential staff closely supervise the small living groups. Close friendships will abound at ACADEMIA LATINA for students from southern Oregon. The last day consists of a presentation of graduation certificates and a closing ceremony for students and their families.
