TRINITY SET TO BEGIN
FIRST SUMMER SCHOOL SESSION
For the first time in its
46-year history, Trinity Christian College will offer classes during a
formal summer program. The session will last for six weeks, beginning May
23 and ending July 1.
Students may register for
courses in education, mathematics, science, and physical education. Registration
is open to all college students as well as select high school students
who have completed their junior years. Those students also will receive
college credit for passing.
"We gauged student interest
to determine the feasibility of starting a summer school program," said
Dr. Mark Ward, associate provost at Trinity. "We wanted to offer some courses
that are unique to Trinity and have our faculty teach them in order to
ensure quality instruction."
The College plans to have
10 courses available this summer. One course that Ward is confident will
fill up quickly is Teaching Business Education in Grades 6-12. Trinity
is one of few institutions in the Chicago area that will offer it in the
summer, and it is a required course for students pursuing a business education
In the past, Trinity offered
two or three courses during the summer to a small number of students. Ward
said that the College is committed to having a regular six-week program
