Summer Programs

Thank you for a wonderful summer, Wolfpack!

Save the dates for our Saint Ignatius Summer Programs 2023:

Summer 2023 will run two three-week sessions.  Session 1 will run from Monday, June 12, 2023 through Friday, June 30, 2023 with Monday, June 19 off in observance of Juneteenth.  Session 2 will run from Monday, July 10, 2023 through Friday, July 28, 2023.  Credit-earning advancement courses will run during both Session 1 and Session 2.  Most other classes and camps will have specific weeks or sessions.  Check back here in February 2023 for more information!

Saint Ignatius College Prep is excited to offer a variety of engaging summer courses and camps for both prospective students and our current students.  Whether your student is interested in global affairs, baseball, science, or beyond there is a place for your student with the Wolfpack this summer!  

Detailed information about courses and camps for Summer 2023 will be found on the specific program pages listed to the right in February 2023.  Please know that many courses and camps fill quickly.  All academic and most co-curricular offerings are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so we encourage you to register early in order to have the best opportunity to take the courses or camps you select.

A note for rising 5th through 8th grade students:
Our Summer Programming is scheduled so that students have the opportunity to take academic courses and camps in the morning (8am to 12pm), have a lunch break, and then join us for athletic and co-curricular camps in the afternoon (typically 12:30pm to 2:30pm).  This schedule allows for a balanced day of learning and enrichment, and also provides students with the full Ignatius experience.  We believe that our students are life-long learners who are open to growth.  We recognize that learning and growth occur both in and out of the classroom and designed our Summer Programs to reflect this belief.  Participants are encouraged to build a schedule of courses and camps that are most interesting and exciting for your student!

When you have made your course and camp selections, all registration occurs through the 8to18 online portal.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Wolfpack this summer!

Attendance for Academic Courses
Full attendance is necessary for the successful completion of a Summer Programs academic course.  Particularly for the three-week courses, students are expected to attend class everyday.  Please avoid signing up for classes on dates that may conflict with vacations and other summer camps.

For the 5th and 6th grade Pack Camps, the cost is $200 per week or $185 per week if a student is registered for three or more total weeks of Pack Camp.  All who register a 5th or 6th grade student for three or more total weeks of Pack Camp should enter the code PackCampDiscount in the 'alternate payment code' at checkout.

For the Junior High courses, the cost is $275 for each three-week course or $525 for two courses in one session.  All who register a junior high (7th or 8th grade) student for two academic courses should enter the code 2CourseDiscount in the 'alternate payment code' at checkout.

For Current Students and Incoming Freshmen, the cost for most courses is $550 with a few exceptions noted in the course descriptions. 

Athletic and co-curricular camp costs vary.  Discounts are available for some camps when students register for more than one week.  All costs and any discounted costs are already reflected on the 8to18 portal for registration.  For example, one week of basketball camp is $140, but if the student registers for the two weeks of camp option on 8to18, the cost is automatically adjusted $250 for those two weeks.  Please see the specific camp descriptions and 8to18 registration options for associated costs.

Payment in full is due with registration materials.  If extenuating circumstances arise, partial refunds for those who qualify will be available by contacting the Summer Programs Office.  Financial aid is available for for current Ignatius students.  Saint Ignatius College Prep reserves the right to cancel a course or camp if minimum enrollment is not achieved.

All 5th through 8th grade courses are non-credit enrichment courses.  Most Current Student and Incoming Freshmen academic courses, with a few exceptions noted in the course descriptions, are non-credit courses.

Students' clothing must be neat, clean, and appropriate for school.  Walking shorts are allowed.  All dress code regulations for athletic and co-curricular camps will be outlined on the first day of camp.

Saint Ignatius College Prep is located at 1076 W Roosevelt Road, Chicago IL.  The parking lot is located west of the main school doors at the corner of Roosevelt Road and Racine.  Students enter and exit the school building through the Walsh Garden Entrance accessed by the gate in between the light at Blue Island and the main school doors.

Saint Ignatius does not have a summer bus service.  However, we sell reduced-fare student Ventra cards and distribute reduced-fare Metra letters.  Located next to the University of Illinois - Chicago campus on Roosevelt Road, Saint Ignatius is easily accessible by several CTA bus routes that link the school to downtown train stations and several CTA rail lines.  The Blue Line El is just a ten-minute walk.  By car, the school is within a few minutes of the Dan Ryan, Kennedy, Eisenhower, and Stevenson Expressways.
