What’s at BRIGHTS for Summer?
At BRIGHTS, Summer Program is so unique and well organized that it has become one of Istanbul’s most distinct summer programs!
BRIGHTS Summer Program does not only insure our team of educators plenty of time for skill reinforcement but also allows BRIGHTS students more time for engagement with newly acquired life skills.
By the same token, Summer Program prepares new students who are willing to join BRIGHTS in the following year some time to get along with school’s versatile, international culture. As such, BRIGHTS Summer Program serves as both a skill recap wheel for already registered BRIGHTS students and as a new learning hub for BRIGHTS-to-be students as they smoothly delve into the school’s versatile culture.
