About Charles Wright Academy
Tacoma, Wash. - About 120 students from across the South Puget Sound region gathered at Charles Wright Academy on Saturday, March 1, to conduct kid-friendly scientific experiments from building and launching rockets to digging for minerals.
An informal information session with the camp’s Tacoma Community Director Laurel Jacobs will be held on Thursday, February 27, at Forza Coffee at 2700 Bridgeport Way West in University Place from 9 to 11 a.m. Feel free to stop by to ask questions about the coolest summer camp in Tacoma!
Tacoma, Wash. – For many high school students, mid-February typically offers a break from studies for the Presidents Day holiday or a mid-winter break.
However, while they may not be in class—or even in the state—students attending Charles Wright Academy are definitely still learning. For more than 30 years, the college preparatory school has used this time to give enrolled students an opportunity to explore themes and activities outside the established curriculum. While experiential learning is a hallmark of the school’s teaching style, Winterim takes it a step further by leaving the classroom environment entirely.
