The Essex School @ Ashland University is for rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors who are identified gifted in the state of Ohio. It is a virtual Summer Camp learning experience on the VirBELA platform from Sunday, June 19, 2022, 4:00 pm, through Friday, June 24, 2022, at 7:30pm.
Each morning, a choice of interesting Plenary Sessions will give students a chance to explore a unique topic or content each day. These small-group sessions will be led by expert faculty from throughout Ohio.
Daily lunch breaks are taken together in brown bag social sessions with fellow Essexers, faculty, and staff.
Each afternoon will be devoted to in-depth small-group Intensive courses by an expert in the field. Students have the same Intensive topic each day. We are currently recruiting faculty for these sessions, so Intensive topics will be announced on the website on December 1. Last year’s 2021 offerings included songwriting, comparative religions, advocacy, Shakespearean theater, and storytelling, and we will be expanding topics for 2022.
Evening Master Classes give students the opportunity to explore issues of interest with the whole group. These are optional, to allow students with jobs a chance to work. Friday, June 24, however, is a Parent Night and Talent Share to culminate the week, from 5:30-7:00pm.
Dates for 2022 School: June 19-24, 2022. The cost for Essex @ Ashland will be $150, with scholarships available. Contact Dr. Jennifer Groman at email@example.com for more information or visit the website for an application. Website www.ashland.edu/coe/essex-school
We will begin taking applications December 1, 2021 until April 15, 2022. Notification of acceptance will sent via email by May 1, 2022.
