For thousands of years, humans have used creative outlets to
both express their feelings, as well as to understand their meaning.
The late John Wolter, the person most responsible for the founding
visions that have become The Oliverian School, was no different.
John was a man of deep reflection, in both his purpose in life,
and in the purpose of life. In the spirit of his life and legacy,
The Oliverian School has decided to base this years' summer school
on the theme "Spirit Quest" An Exploration in Creative
Summer session students will complete course work and receive
½ credit in all core academic subjects, while exploring
a their talents, ambitions and interests through a variety of
creative classes, workshops and presenters in the areas of Art,
Music, Writing, Culinary Arts, Digital Photography and other creative
venues. Embracing our approach of integrating a hands-on group
project into our curriculum, we have decided to dedicate the summer
of 2006 to the building of a stone spiritual center on Iron Mountain,
part our 2000 acre wildlife preserve with panoramic views of the
White Mountains, Green Mountains and Connecticut River Valley.
Summer session is a supportive, college preparatory environment,
allowing students to learn to manage their time within an active
and structured environment. Afternoon and weekend activities include
a number of outdoor and adventure related trips and activities,
including rock climbing, canoeing, white water rafting and sailing.
Tuition for this six week program is $8,000 and includes room,
board, academic instruction, advising & counseling services
