English & Philosophy at Boundless
We do not sit in rows of desks and take notes while a teacher drones on. We invent words. We film ads. We create graphic novels 30 feet in the air. We write poetry while we gaze over beautiful valley lookouts. We read horror stories in creepy old churches. We craft short stories that can make you laugh out loud, jump with excitement or shout in dismay. Here English is not a rigid system but the rules to create your own universe.
May be used towards College or University Admission.
Imagine lying on soft grass under the infinity of stars on a warm, August evening discussing the nature of reality and the universe; or sitting on a beach debating ethical dilemmas with friends. Driven by discussion, experiential activities and togas, this course would make Socrates grin. It promises to marry a student’s natural curiosity with Boundless’ beautiful range of environments.
Applies towards university admission. This course requires a student to already have completed a University level course in Humanities, English or Canadian/World Studies.
Older students are encouraged to consider our 4-credit program, where students earn four full credits for participating on three 13-day summer programs. Four-Creditors may combine outdoor and humanity credits (English and Philosophy) across their three trips.
Parents are encouraged to contact Steven Gottlieb to explore the nuance of this program in greater detail.
