Online Programs Throughout the School Year
Keeping Middle and High School Students Engaged in Literary Adventure and Writing
Great Books offers a vibrant community of online learning at its best with programs during the Summer, first semester School Year, Winter Break, second semester School Year.
Our online advanced reading selections and seminars are led by experienced collegiate faculty to help students hone critical and analytical thinking skills. Students learn to take intellectual risks and take command of their own best thinking and powers of expression. The program delivers excellent preparation for seminar-style college classes, for the life skill of thinking well on one's feet, and in no small measure the SAT critical thinking section.
We help our students gain confidence and find their own voice to share their ideas, all year long. In addition to practicing and developing self-expression and reasoning skills, students develop their ability to listen carefully and consider the views of others.
We are thrilled to offer a host of exciting choices for students entering grades 6-8, grades 9-12, and graduating seniors! Autumn Online Programs begin in late September.
Great Books Online is live, interactive, fun and back for a third fall season. Led by the same esteemed faculty and scholars as our on-campus programs, GBO models university seminars and discussions. And adds the fun and comraderie of summer camp.
