Biology Lab Summer Boot Camp and Chemistry Lab Summer Boot Camp are five half-day lab intensives for high school students who are pursuing or who have recently completed a virtual or textbook-only high school course that did not include hands-on lab work. These sessions can also serve as a preview for teens who will be taking full courses in high school biology or chemistry in the fall of 2024. They are also suitable for students who need “a little extra” work to wrap up a course or for any other high school student who enjoys laboratory work. 

The Dulles Area Summer Band Camp is for any beginning woodwinds, brass, or percussion musician who wants some practice on their instrument before the start of their fall concert band in public school or in Compass’s new Homeschool Band program. See the camp webpage for additional details.

Enrollment in these programs is not limited to just Compass students or homeschoolers. Students from any school setting are welcome to join us!
