Literary Oxford - Waitlist Only for Summer 2022!
On-Campus Enrollment is Now Open!
One and Two Week Programs
July 17 - 23 (Waitlist Only!)
July 24 - July 30 (Waitlist Only!)
For students in Grades 9-12.
Oxford revolves around its prestigious university, established in the 12th century. The architecture of its 38 colleges in the city’s medieval center led poet Matthew Arnold to nickname it the 'City of Dreaming Spires'. University College and Magdalen College are off the High Street, which runs from Carfax Tower to the Botanic Garden on the River Cherwell.
What is the Program Like?
As our "little gem," enrollment is limited to no more than 20 students and is open only to high school participants (ages 14 to 18). The program is staffed by seasoned GBSP personnel as well as faculty, guests, and staff. During our stay in Oxford, we will spend our mornings taking part in Shared Inquiry seminars and discussion. We take advantage of our location to create a curriculum rich with British literature, including selections from Shakespeare as well as authors who once called Oxford home. Select afternoons will include walking tours, punting on the Thames, and perhaps visits to some of the other colleges - most notably New College and Christ Church, where Harry Potter was filmed. (In prior years, we found the entrance to the room of requirement!) We will experience a hauntingly hilarious walking ghost tour of the city!
