We are hard at work planning exciting activities for our 2013 season! Here are just a few trips that occurred last summer:
The largest city in New England, Boston is regarded as the unofficial "Capital of New England" for its economic and cultural impact on the entire New England region. With many colleges and universities within the city and surrounding area, Boston is an international center of higher education. During your visit, you will have the opportunity to explore this fabulous city!
Six Flags New England
Six Flags is the largest amusement park in New England. It has a total of 46 rides (including 11 roller coasters) and a full water park. Relieve some stress and have a wonderful time with the rides, games, and other attractions!
Much of the city's cultural identity is reflective of its role as the location of the Salem witch trials of 1692. New Age and Wiccan boutiques, witch-themed attractions, and more than 60 restaurants, cafes and coffee shops are located throughout the city. Salem also has a historic waterfront area, and is designated as the birthplace of the National Guard.
End of Summer Barbeque
This is a time to celebrate your academic and social accomplishments during your weeks in the Gateway Scholars Program this summer surrounded by new friends, great food, and a shared experience. The event is our salute to you for all of your hard work!
