|The Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) is an intense, three-week academic program that gives students the opportunity to take one high school or college level course at an accelerated pace. All courses are designed to allow students to earn credit, with school approval, upon successful completion of the program. Because of the fast pace of this program, commuter students must commit to attend the evening session. In addition to taking challenging courses, the residential students live in dorms and all students participate in organized recreational activities. WCATY believes curricular rigor, high expectations, and a student's personal passion for learning must work together to allow talented students to excel. Classes are small, with no more than 16 students, and we focus on adjusting the pace and level of instruction to meet students' needs. WCATY knows academic rigor is essential for student success, but we also know friendships are one of the key reasons students come back.|
Time outside of class is spent in recreational activities in small groups or with the whole camp, including weekend visits to local attractions, a mall-crawl, and Fourth-of-July activities. While on campus, students enjoy all aspects of college life - living in dorms, eating in the cafeteria, and use of recreational facilities.
|Activities: Basketball, computers/technology, crafts, dance, drama, exercise/aerobics/fitness, football, painting/drawing, photography, reading/book study, soccer, swimming, tennis, writing. Also - All camp talent show and dance at the end of the camp.|
