Currently the plan is to administer our academic programs remotely through Zoom. If we are permitted by public health guidelines to hold classes on campus, we may offer a hybrid model where there could be some days when students are able to come to campus for class. Even if we are able to offer a hybrid model, students will have the option to attend class remotely through Zoom. 

Class schedules, attendance, and other policies will remain the same.


Welcome to Summer at Marymount!

Whether you want to grow as a writer, strengthen your Spanish skills, or earn academic credit and advance within mathematics, Marymount's Virtual Summer School is the place for you!

All of our programs are available to girls in the public and some camps begin as early as Grade 8.

  • Creative Writing

    This class will explore all elements of creative writing, with particular emphasis on beginnings and endings.  How do we take the beginning of a story—a great idea for a crazy character, an exciting event, or a cool concept—and shape them into a cohesive and complete story?  We’ll learn how to utilize language, structure, and characterization so our ideas transform into sharp and compelling stories. We’ll discuss other basic tenets of creative writing including dialogue and setting, and we’ll find ways to think critically about our own and published writing, too.  Readings of published fiction, non-fiction, and poetry will supplement our discussions of students’ work.  We will complete various writing exercises in addition to, or as the start of, a promising project for each student. No prior writing experience is necessary for this course.

    This course does not fulfill the admission recommendation. If you were recommended to enroll in a summer writing course, please select "From Good to Great: Writing with Confidence at Marymount" course.
