Each summer, students from Saint Ignatius School in the Bronx participate in a five-week long enrichment program at Camp Monserrate in Lake Placid, N.Y.
The St. Ignatius Summer Leadership Program allows students to grow by promoting teamwork, building confidence and teaching leadership. In addition to activities like hiking, swimming and photography, students take daily classes that allow them to hone their math, language arts and writing skills.
Saint Ignatius School is a middle school focused on helping students of promise achieve their potential. In addition to academic growth, Saint Ignatius School also focuses on the spiritual, moral and social growth of each student. Founded in 1995, the school has been helping students from low-income families break the cycle of poverty.
