Summer Literature Class: Myths

Open to 8th Students through Adults

Date: June 10 – June 14

Time: 8:45 AM – 10:45 AM

Cost: $60 for the entire week

Literature is an essential part of a classical education, but where does one start?  With the ‘building blocks of stories’.  The Great Books are made up of these building blocks and understanding them is the key to understanding authors like Dante and Shakespeare.  Our two summer classes cover myths and fairy tales, two of the most important of these building blocks.

Join us for Myths:
Why did medieval Christians love the pagan myths?  Why were medieval monks willing to risk their lives to save these works? Because they knew something that we modern Christians have forgotten.

We read the Old Testament knowing that these ancient stories point to the coming of Christ.  In this week-long class on myths, you will be amazed to discover that ALL ancient stories point to Christ.

Location: Chesterton Academy of Omaha (School building behind St. Mary’s, 36th & Q Streets)

Instructor: Mrs. Jessette Berggren, Literature teacher at Chesterton Academy of Omaha

You and your children are invited to attend the 8:00 mass at St. Mary’s before the morning camps. Following mass, we will offer a light breakfast. A teacher will be at the southeast church door to meet the children at 7:50 if a parent is not attending. Otherwise, children may be dropped off at the school between 8:35-8:45.


Please enter our parking lot on Q Street and exit on 36th. We will be using our new school entrance under the awning, the second door, on 36th Street.
