Summer School

June 23 - July 27, 2019


The Summer Advantage

Summer OPS (Opportunities for Personal Success) provides the "St. John’s Northwestern Experience" in five intensive weeks of learning and training. The program offers young men and women in grades 7-12 an opportunity to advance academically in the structured and supportive environment of our military boarding school. Summer faculty and staff will guide cadets toward the character traits and leadership skills they will need as adults. Summer cadets engage in each of the four pillars of the academy.


Our goal is to provide cadets with the best possible learning environment while supporting them as they achieve their goals.
  • Earn additional credit by taking a new course
  • Repeat a course for credit recovery
  • Small class sizes 
  • Structured evening study hours 


Cadets experience the same successful military leadership training that is offered during the regular school year at St. John’s Northwestern. 
  • Daily military training which instills structure, discipline and develops personal leadership skills.
  • Students may earn rank and hold leadership positions within the program's military structure.

Sports & Activities

Cadets participate in an after school athletic activity Monday through Friday. Weekends have scheduled on-campus and off-campus activities.

Spiritual Development

All cadets attend chapel services during the week. This fellowship time serves to build community and to identify, promote and encourage the qualities that lead to personal success.
