Summer Camps and Classes at McQuaid Jesuit
McQuaid Jesuit offers several opportunities for young men during the summer months. McQuaid hosts several camps and classes when school is not in session; from sports camps, to music lessons, math classes, college preparatory sessions, service trips, and more. New for 2017, McQuaid has summer courses that will be open to students at Our Lady of Mercy, and Mercy will offer the same for McQuaid students. These courses are designed to help students prepare for entry into college, and have limited availability. Visit the website today for more information and to reserve your spot in either the Summer Essay Workshop or College Application Workshop...or both!
