Graduate Leadership: Classical Schools Residency

Annual two-week summer residencies take students to Orvieto, Italy (north of Rome) and Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts (northeast of Boston) as an opportunity to bring virtual classmates together for intensive and experiential learning, mentoring, and networking as a cohort.

There will also be a one-week winter on-site practicum at a leading classical Christian school with opportunities to see effective administration in action and identify indicators of success.

Summer 2021 residency in Orvieto, Italy: June 30– July 15, 2021
Winter Practicum: Dates TBD

In Italy, students will stay at Gordon’s campus in Orvieto in a renovated 13th-century convent in the middle of the city for the duration of the residency. Meals will be provided on-site prepared by the resident chef and transportation to and from the airport and all other off-site locations will be provided. $500 fee* includes flight, room, and board.

Gordon offers on-campus housing during the second summer residency for $310 per week. A Gordon shuttle will pick students up at the airport, and bring them to campus. Apartment-style residence halls (with a private kitchen and bathroom) are available for the duration of the residency, with 3 meals a day and complimentary access to the Bennett Athletic and Recreation Center.

*$1000 travel stipend per student from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust reduces program cost to $750 for the two-week experience.
