PacificQuest 2015 is scheduled for July 19-24!

PacificQuest is an exciting opportunity for gifted students! Campers will explore college-level courses and receive one hour of college credit for their work. PacificQuest is a one-week residential summer experience where motivated students who completed grades 6, 7, or 8, in 2015 will live on-campus, learn from current PUC professors, and spend time with fellow high-achieving junior high students!

To qualify for PacificQuest, students should have achievement test scores of at least 90 percent in language and math, great recommendations from teachers and principals, and good grades. Enrollment is limited to the 24 most qualified students.

Summer 2015 Classes

L’italiano per tutti! A Taste of Italian Language & Culture
How can a country the size of Arizona that came together after our Civil War, with a population less than twice California’s have such an outsized impact on the world stage? Experience the beauty of Italian language and culture – including non-verbal communication and cuisine! Experience Cal-Ital in our own Napa Valley. Learn about language families, and consider your own ethnolinguistic repertoire.

Taught by Sylvia Rasi Gregorutti , Ph.D., chair of the department of modern languages. Learn more about Dr. Rasi-Gregorutti.

Recreation and Programs
While PacificQuest is a great time for academically gifted and motivated students to learn on the college level, it’s not just sitting in a classroom! The day starts with worship and a delicious breakfast. Recreation time in the morning is a great way to exercise the body as well as the mind. Evening programs—including the always-popular quiz bowl, talent show, and pool party—make each day memorable. PacificQuest is a great opportunity for talented students to have fun and form friendships with other like-minded kids!
