Academic Summer Programs

We look forward to hosting a variety of Academic Programs at Malvern Prep this summer. This year’s Academic summer courses will follow the hybrid model (unless otherwise stated) which means that attendees may come to campus or receive instruction virtually. All classes meet Monday through Friday, but times will vary. Please review the course information to ensure you are aware of the dates/times for class meetings. 

Any course material or additional information that your student will need will be communicated as the start date of the course approaches.

Registration deadline is June 1, 2021.

  • Theology

This course has two main parts.  First, students will start with an investigation of first principles and fundamental questions. The second part of the course moves beyond this investigation of God, life, death, and eternity, and in a very practical way considers what Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church have proclaimed and recommended to human beings concerning human love and relationships.
