The King’s College McGowan Hispanic Outreach Program recently completed its eighth Summer Residential Enrichment Program for high school juniors and seniors. The summer residential program is an extension of the weekly mentoring program that take place during the academic year.
The high school students are currently studying at Coughlin, Meyers, GAR, and Scranton High School. The group also included two students who graduated from a high school in Columbia and recently emigrated to Northeast Pennsylvania. This summer’s high school curriculum included classes in literacy, math, environmental science, theater and leadership. Library skills and reading skills workshops were also built into the curriculum.
The three-week curriculum included a visit to the Pocono Environmental Education Center. To complement their science class, the high school students learned how animals interact with the environment.
