Assumption College is offering a five-day residential program from June 23-28, 2013, for high school juniors who are about to become seniors and sophomores who are becoming juniors.

Students will engage in classroom discussions with Assumption faculty about the ways ancient Greece and Rome have influenced the United States; visit local and regional sites (Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Old Sturbridge Village) to see art, history and politics in action; live in a college residence hall with resident advisors; and eat in the campus dining hall. Due to the generosity of an Assumption College donor, the program costs $200.

“Assumption College believes that the liberal arts are essential to the development of a better society,” said Professor Geoffrey Vaughan, director of the college’s Fortin & Gonthier Foundations of Western Civilization Program and the summer program’s organizer. “This program is an incredible opportunity for high school students to experience many facets of a liberal arts education. Students will see how different disciplines are integrated, and this will serve them throughout their academic careers.”

Students interested in applying for this selective program can register now through April 19, 2013 at
