Prior to our first departure day of the summer, we celebrated the incredible opportunities and memories we have had on Friday night with "Disney in the Dorm" complete with Disney jeopardy, a photo booth, and, the crowd favorite, silent disco! Each floor of the dorm was filled with students smiling and enjoying the last few moments with friends that are sure to last for years to come.
The next day was filled with tight hugs, tears, and yelled reminders to keep in touch as we said goodbye and thank you to our Academy and Penn Prep A students, as well as a portion of our RC staff. The summer isn't over yet! Our Pre-College students are still hard at work as they prepare for their midterms and continue making the most of their time in Philadelphia. The students visited Baltimore Harbor, Maryland, where we managed to make the most of the rainy weather with trips to the National Aquarium, Ripley's Believe It Or Not!, and plenty of sightseeing and shopping! It was a much needed break for the students from their studying and test preparations as well as an opportunity to explore a new city for the day.
This week, our Penn Prep B students will arrive on our last arrival day of the summer! We are so excited to welcome over 100 more students to our Penn Summer Discovery family. With two weeks left in the summer, we're sure there is plenty more memories to be made.
