With subjects ranging from Chinese to Lego robotics to video and audio production, there's sure to be something for your young scholar at Moorestown Friends School.

Moorestown Friends School (MFS) will host a Summer Scholars program for all ages this year, with subjects including robotics, video and audio production, architecture and Chinese.

The program is for students entering prekindergarten (4 years old and up) through 10th grade. Summer Scholars programs will be held from July 8-26, and all will be led by MFS teachers. Summer Scholars students do not need to be enrolled at Moorestown Friends School. The program is open to the general public.

“We’re very excited to provide these summer offerings at Moorestown Friends School as another summer option for the Moorestown community and beyond,” said MFS Summer Scholars Director Kathryn Park Cook. “Our teachers have designed some very innovative, challenging and fun programs.”

The Senior Scholars program is a three-week program for students entering seventh through 10th grade. Sessions are held on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. July 8-26.
