What is Schola?

Schola │Latin │noun │ /ˈskʰo.la/

1. leisure for learning

2. an intermission from work

3. learned conversation

4. a meeting place for teachers and students

Schola is a unique high school summer program that affords students an opportunity to grow in friendship, devotion, wisdom, and wonder—through leisure. Participants are invited to slow down, to spend a summer week cultivating the goodness of their souls by reading and discussing classic works of philosophy and literature with friends, having meaningful conversations about the fundamental questions of life, enjoying daily recreational and social activities, viewing films, contemplating beautiful works of art, and spending time in prayer and worship with the monastic community of Belmont Abbey.
