    Circle Camps for Grieving ChildrenWhen a young girl’s parent dies, her childhood is forever altered. Huge challenges lie ahead of her as she confronts a life that is suddenly very different from what it used to be. Circle Camps is a unique program that offers a week of traditional overnight camp to girls who have experienced the death of a parent. By spending time with other girls who understand, Circle campers feel less alone in their loss. The program’s youngest campers are entering third grade, and the oldest are entering eighth. Campers live in bunks with three counselors, and participate in a full program of waterfront, arts and crafts, and land sports. A carefully planned schedule keeps the girls busy from breakfast until bedtime. During the course of the week, there are several structured opportunities for campers to share and rework their stories of loss. Under the guidance of a professional, each bunk comes together in a “Circle Time”. This offers every girl a chance to share memories of her deceased parent with her bunkmates. Crafts projects allow girls to memorialize their parents. Later in the week, there is an evening campfire that focuses on the theme of loss. A service held on the final morning of camp is especially meaningful as all campers and counselors place a personally inscribed rock in a memory garden. And, throughout the week, there are spontaneous conversations – in the bunks, on walks down to the lake, during rest hour – that help campers feel supported and connected to each other. Despite the sadness that is present in these girls’ lives, the days at Circle Camps are typically filled with smiling, laughing and singing. Circle offers its campers a time to play.AlleghenySummer ProgramsSummer Programs

    Teenshop - Youth Development - GraceIn 1985 while working full-time as a television news personality at Philadelphia's CBS affiliate, Eleanor Jean Hendley wanted to make a positive difference in the community by developing a program to empower adolescent girls. As a former New Jersey public school educator who created and directed an award-winning after school dance program for girls, Ms. Hendley knew first hand how enrichment activities help students achieve and builds self-esteem. Then as now, the Teenshop program, which officially began on June 15th, was an innovative series of workshops, field trips, college tours, and community service projects. It was also designed to encourage academic excellence and promote abstinence, so membership was limited to students thirteen to eighteen who were not parents. Workshops were held every two weeks on Saturday mornings from September to June, and the adult presenters were experts in their diverse fields, including arts and culture, money management, social graces, and health and fitness. Interest in Teenshop quickly grew and adults soon inquired about starting affiliated chapters. Ms. Hendley had never considered expanding Teenshop, and had only planned the program as an activity for girls at her former church home. But after years of repeated requests, a new chapter was formed in 1990. There are currently four Philadelphia chapters and one in Los Angeles, California, each under the leadership of five dedicated female volunteers. More than one hundred and twenty-five girls enroll annually and ALL graduates attend college or pursue other education. Through the years numerous Teenshop alumnae, now successful working women, have come back to work in leadership positions in their former chapters.PhiladelphiaGrace TeenshopTeenshop

    Villa Maria AcademyVilla Maria Academy is a college preparatory school. The courses, therefore, are selected and arranged to equip the student with the knowledge and skills necessary to continue her education. That education may take several directions. To achieve the goal of providing a solid preparation for these varied directions, Villa Maria requires sequential programs in the six major areas of theology, English, mathematics, science, languages, and social studies. This basic program is supplemented by several minor courses offered throughout the four years. The curriculum at Villa Maria is a demanding one. The student is expected to pursue a course of study that will continually reinforce analytic problem solving skills and comprehension development. Thus, every course is taught at a college preparatory level challenging the student to work with increasing independence. Honors courses are taught at an accelerated pace to challenge the academically competent student who is able to pursue in-depth study and who is willing to spend extra time outside of class working independently.For those students ready - and able - to do college level work, advanced placement courses are provided.In order to fully benefit from these AP courses, the student is required to take responsibility for extensive reading and writing assignments as independent study. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the tireless efforts of a dedicated faculty, and the consistently effective study of the student, these years at Villa Maria afford an excellent opportunity to build a solid foundation for a successful college education and the attainment of life's goals.Chester*Main Site (Villa Maria Academy)Villa Maria Academy
