Lion Engage is now closed but you may scroll down to read about our sessions from this past summer. Be sure to check back in the spring to see a full list of our classes and schedule for the summer of 2017.

Designed for students entering grades 6-8, Lion Engage is a great summer opportunity to dive into experiential learning. You will learn hands-on from passionate and engaging instructors, interact with high school student mentors, and have fun while doing it!

You may choose morning and/or afternoon sessions, and each one is one week long. Each individual program below is considered one session (e.g. Studio Art is one session, Law and Film/TV are considered two sessions, etc.).


Business | Mrs. Alexandria Pierce

This workshop includes learning about creating a product and a company mission statement, the basics of financing a product, website construction, and product marketing. Students will attend a presentation by a regional business leader and discuss issues facing a start-up or mature business, as well as participate in a Shark Tank scenario.

Film / TV: Sports Broadcasting | Mr. Paul Higgins

Receive REAL broadcasting experience in the areas of play by play, sideline reporting, hosting, studio interviews and more. Learn about radio and the television production aspects behind sports and entertainment. Taught by network professional producer and host Paul J. Higgins – founder of Athletes In Motion Sports Television.

Law | Mr. Patrick Ahle

Students will learn constitutional law, evidence, and trial law. They will tour a courthouse, participate in an engaging mock trial computer game, conduct a mini-trial, and have current students as mentors.

Studio Art: Creativity Workshop | Ms. Alejandra Germann

If Art is your favorite subject during the school year, then you’re going to love this summer program! Each day we will explore what it’s like to be a real artist by learning to see the world as our inspiration and how to face the challenge of creating original works of art. Students will develop and expand their creativity with a dynamic project each day that will require thinking outside the box and using their imaginations. Experimenting with art techniques in both traditional and contemporary styles, students will use a wide variety of media, such as: pen and ink, graphite, watercolor, acrylic on canvas, and more.

Theater | Ms. Elise Ybarra

Students will delve into the foundations of performance and develop their skills through improvisation play, scene study, and character exploration. The week culminates in a performance of scenes rehearsed and directed in class that showcase their new knowledge of exploring action/objective, characterization, and engaging ensemble performance.

Vocal Performance | Mr. Brian Dehn

A fun and fast-paced music camp where all singing styles will be explored, such as pop, musical theatre, classical, choral, and opera. Multiple solo opportunities will be available. Lion Engage students will increase their vocal skills and put together a performance, joining with current JSerra students, for the end of the week. Bring a friend and have a blast singing and performing – a great intro to being part of JSerra’s prestigious choral program!
