Dear Senior Students and Parents,

At Kellenberg Memorial we have established an academic program that includes four full years of study in all core subject areas.  Our goal is to provide a liberal arts education that prepares each student for higher academic pursuits.  The seniors have worked throughout their years at Kellenberg Memorial to build up a momentum for entering college.  We have one more opportunity to extend to the seniors to assist in their successful transition to college.  

Beginning after senior comprehensives have concluded, we will offer seminars in Calculus, Economics, Introduction to Law and Criminal Justice, Physics, and Statistics. The purpose of the seminars is to give the students extensive introductory exposure to college level courses and reduce the anxiety with which many students venture into these courses.  The seminars will meet on certain days from the week after senior comprehensives until mid-June.  Participants may elect to enroll in up to 2 seminars. The seminars are free of charge.  The description for each course can be found below.  

Seminar Course Descriptions


This course is designed to introduce students who have not taken our Calculus 1 course during their four years at Kellenberg to key topics that they will see should they choose to go into any STEM field in college.

The Introduction to Economics Seminar will equip seniors with fundamental economic knowledge as they transition to college or the workforce. They will gain a broader perspective on the role of economics in shaping society and the overall world economy. It will solidify important interdisciplinary skills such as critical thinking and decision-making abilities that will benefit them for years to come.  They will develop analytical skills for evaluating the roles of consumers, producers, and the government. A focus in personal finance will help students make informed career choices and understand the economic landscape in which they live.  The seminar will utilize a series of lectures, discussions, interactive activities, and case studies surrounding the topics of finance, business, government and economics.  These real-world examples and scenarios will be used to illustrate economic concepts and their relevance in everyday life.
