Castleton Center for Schools to Offer Record Number of Summer Courses

A long-time leader in Vermont continuing education, the Castleton Center for Schools continues to expand, offering a record number of graduate-level courses this summer aimed at meeting the needs of K-12 educators and administrators. The summer course list includes a variety of delivery formats to best accommodate educators’ schedules, including on-site classes held throughout Vermont, New Hampshire and New York, online options, and blended models that combine in-person meetings and online work.

“In response to educator requests, we have built over 135 courses for summer 2018,” said Castleton Center for Schools Assistant Director Tara Lidstone. “These courses cover a wide range of content areas, geographic locations, and delivery formats. We strive to provide educators with as many relevant, convenient and affordable learning opportunities as possible.”

Established by Castleton University in 2002, the Castleton Center for Schools is committed to advancing education for all public and private school educators and administrators throughout Vermont, New Hampshire, and beyond. The Center’s primary purpose is to provide educators with the skills and coursework needed to support them in their work.  

Summer course site locations include the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, Earthwalk, Fort Ticonderoga, Lake Bomoseen, the Vermont Institute of Natural Science, the Grafton Inn, Buck Lake, and North Branch Nature Center, with course topics ranging from work-based learning, French, online teaching, outdoor education, literacy, proficiency-based learning, technology, special education and more.
