Forest Ridge's re-energized summer programs emphasize the school's unique features. The summer program is co-ed and now, geared toward grades 4-8 and 9-12.
Middle School: This year, we created four theme weeks for students in grades 4-6 and 7-8. Each week’s theme includes service projects, educational components and, of course, FUN! This day-long structure allows students to dabble in broad fields to help them find their particular passion. Here’s an example of one of the week’s activities:
Arts and Culture Week • Paint a mural for a King County Metro Bus Shop Shelter • Take an Introduction to Photography workshop • Create a Japanese Sumi-E painting • Visit the Olympic Sculpture Park • Create your own music at EMP
High School: Grades 9-12 The high school program has three elements: credit classes, service and college search. 1.) Credit classes: Several credit classes are being offered this summer to help students from Forest Ridge either gain credit for an elective that is offered during the school year; or get a refresher course or an edge on full year courses. Courses are equivalent to one semester's worth of material. 2.) Service: Also new this year is a service program for high school students. Ten service projects per week, each with a different focus, will be available for students to sign up for and complete as a group. Examples of projects include packing food at Food Lifeline, planting trees with EarthCorps, assisting with inventory at the Braille Library and more. 3.) College Search: A great option for sophomores, juniors and seniors, various workshops on how to make the college search process easier are available this year. Choose from an online college essay writing course, or College Admissions 101. Online registration is now available!
