A Classic Summer Course

This sounds like a good opportunity:

The Witherspoon Institute is inviting rising high school juniors and seniors to apply to its Moral Life and the Classical Tradition Seminar, to be taught this June at Princeton University and Princeton Theological Seminary by several distinguished professors.

“This is an excellent one week seminar especially helpful to those bright young men and women that aspire to attend top-tier universities because it enables them to get a firm grasp of the important intellectual arguments to both live the Christian life and strive for intellectual excellence, and how to navigate the secular elite environments,” Witherspoon Institute President Luis Tellez said in an e-mail to CNA.

The classical component of the seminar is a course on the Republic of Plato. After carefully studying the entirety of Plato’s classic text before arriving at the seminar, students will participate in discussions led by Dr. Michael Sugrue of Ave Maria University.
