What is Summercore?

Our unique 5-day Technology Marathon conducted by the Summercore Team is journey through hardware, software and humanware designed to energize teachers. Offered since 1985, Summercore has educated over 3,000 teachers and administrators; Summercore focuses on both skills and issues. Because we divide the skill sessions into JV and Varsity groups, Summercore works for both novices and experts and everyone in between. Every session is designed so that we can address the computer needs of each participant in a meaningful way through lectures, round-table discussions, numerous hands-on skill sessions and experienced teaching.


Summercore has empowered each and every participant to return to her/his school to become part of the essential humanware needed to achieve meaningful integration. The essence of our Summercore philosophy is that every teacher today has a role and responsibility in the technological evolution/revolution going on. Most of our schools have more than enough hardware and software but not enough computer-using teachers. SummerCORE (conference on reforming education) focuses on the one component -- people -- with a goal of increasing the humanware component in Independent Schools.
