Summer Opportunities Outside Texas

Sheridan would like to give Texan High School girls the opportunity to participate in other programs we endorse throughout the country.  

 
 

College prep

College Prep at Bayridge Residence in Boston is for girls entering their junior or senior year in high school. The program will walk attendees through the application process, help them perfect their personal essay and explain the financial aid process. It will also give them a chance to hone critical thinking skills in preparation for college life. There will also be work sessions on thriving in college and tours of several local major universities. 


service in the city

Service in the City is a week-long program in Boston for girls entering their sophomore year in high school. While living at Bayridge the attendees will have the chance to provide one-on-one academic tutoring for school-aged children, tour the city of Boston and learn more about service professions.
In addition, Service in the City now offers a character and leadership development feature in its program that will prepare the participants to make the most of their final years in high school. This program will help participants to grow in self-knowledge, self awareness and the ability to think critically in order to identify and fulfill the needs around them.

HOSPITALITY INTERNSHIPS

A summer program for high school girls to gain invaluable experience in taking care of people. These internships take place at either Shellbourne Conference Center in Indiana or Arnold Hall Conference Center in Massachusetts.

The purpose of the Internship Training is to learn professional skills and gain experience in jobs of the hospitality industry and home management.  In this way, the interns can contribute to the well being of their family, living and social environments –both present and future- while training side-by-side with professionals in the hospitality industry.

Through a variety of classes and hands-on work behind the scenes of Conference Centers, interns learn from the full time Hospitality Staff to provide the Foodservice, Dining room and Lodging services for our guests.

Participants live at the conference center and have a unique opportunity to work and to learn skills that will help them for life.  The internship program includes classes on both professional and personal development as well as Christian doctrine, and cultural and recreational outings around the conference center area.

WHAT IS LCA?

For students of Lights!Camera!Action! (LCA), media goes beyond the red carpet and Facebook friending. Every summer, college women and high school seniors are brought together for a week-long workshop. What joins them is having a keen insight into the industry, an understanding that there’s something going on in movies, TV shows and video games, besides entertainment.
The women of LCA appreciate creativity, not only as expression, but as a vital economic force, a shaper of culture, and an influential agent for progress.

In a media-saturated world, there’s no place like Westfield Residence in Los Angeles to study and reflect on being and believing.

Join us for a week packed with:

  • Classes and discussions led by industry and academic speakers
  • Field trips
  • Philosophy classes and media studies
  • Every summer presents its own dynamic of questions, discussions, and resolutions.
