Loomis Chaffee Summer Program wraps up its first two-week Immersion Program courses in writing, microbiology, and design thinking on July 19.
The Loomis English curriculum is rich with the study of literature and places a distinct focus on writing. The English Department provides you with the skills to be an effective and independent thinker while putting emphasis on the historical development behind the ideas and literature that are studied. Our teachers strive to create an environment in which you are able to participate actively in creating a classroom atmosphere where you and your classmates develop as scholars.
The writing of 91 students was celebrated on Friday, May 17, at the English Honors Tea, where honorees, their teachers, and parents enjoyed sweet treats while reading the works on display in the Katharine Brush Library and listening to five students read their selected papers for the gathering.
Loomis Chaffee recognized students for their achievements and contributions to the school, and Jeff Scanlon '79 was named Teacher of the Year at an All-School Awards convocation on May 21.
In this episode, we hear pieces from a variety of voices on campus. Writing Studio faculty member Sally Knight then discusses the pieces and what writing means here at Loomis.
Some of the authors who have visited campus in recent years include:
Jonathan Safran Foer
