The students study math, grammar, reading and critical thinking taught by teachers, Jesuit alumni and Jesuit students each morning. They participate in electives like sports, cooking, art, music, robotics and videography in the afternoon. This is the program's third summer. Jesuit recruits students for the program by contacting middle school principals, guidance counselors and gifted teachers.

Student award: Francesca Giorgianni, a recent eighth-grade graduate of St. Lawrence Catholic School, was awarded the Monsignor Laurence Higgins Award for Excellence. She has volunteered with Feeding American, Everyday Blessings, Pinellas Hope and the St. Lawrence Catholic Church Vacation Bible School. She is also a member of the National Junior Honor Society and the school's forensic team. She was accepted to the IB program at Hillsborough High School. The award is given to students who use their time in service to others while maintaining high academic standards.
