The F&M Difference.
With enrollment limited to only 80 students and a low student-to-teacher ratio, each Summer Scholar receives the individualized attention they deserve in order to flourish in a very safe and supportive learning environment. The three-week experience balances a combination of class time, service learning, and outdoor fun while encouraging all students to develop their “tool belt” for success by learning how to think critically, problem solve, socialize, collaborate, and find their passions in order to leave the program better equipped for the future.
