Experiences in Critical Creativity
Courses for Credit and Enrichment

At the Summer Institute, our courses are project-based, experiential, and founded on the principles of design thinking: collaboration, brainstorming, prototyping, critique, and a constant interrogation of constraints in order to find new paths to success. The Summer Institute aims to balance the fostering of twenty-first century skills with the freedom of understanding and imagination as worthwhile in themselves. In all of our courses, students will be immersed in experiences that transcend single disciplines, demanding divergent thinking and the willingness to relish open-ended tasks. Below you will find a message from our director as well as links to course descriptions and details for our Middle and High School offerings.
