Mitty Monarch Program Information




  • Mitty Monarch classes are created for Archbishop Mitty students who are either enrolled incoming or current Mitty students.
  • REGISTRATION for Mitty Monarch classes will open April 12, 2021.  Specific registration opening updates will be posted to the ‘Upcoming Events’ section of the Summer Program webpage ( once confirmed.

 • When registering, AMHS families should enter the student’s Mitty ID number as a first step. This will permit Mitty Monarch classes and any pre-approved financial aid from the business office to become available during the registration process.

  • IN-PERSON CLASSES - We intend to offer all enrichment camp experiences in-person. With the County mandate in place to provide proper social distancing between each student (and teacher) in the classroom, we have to limit the number of students in each classroom.  
  • DAILY SCREENING - Every day, prior to coming to campus, students will be required to respond to a set of screening questions, the answers to which indicate whether the student is cleared to come to campus that day. For parents, this process involves logging into your Summer Program account to access the screening system. Each student will be electronically issued a daily color code on their iPad and/or smartphone; and they must show that code at campus access points to gain entry to the campus.
  • CANCELLATION POLICY - Camps will not be refunded once registration closes. Registration closes at the end of the day on the Monday the week before camp or class begins. A customer can receive a refund up to the Monday of the week before their Summer Program camp or class begins. 
  • Mitty Monarch Class fees include a Summer Program apparel item.

Christian Service

Faith in Action (Rising 9 Grade) 
(Choose only one of the two sessions offered)

Have you ever thought to put your faith in action? This summer our newest Monarchs can team up with our AMHS Campus Ministry faculty in one of two available sessions to meet classmates and find meaning and purpose in their life by contributing to something bigger than themselves. Supported by one-on-one faculty mentoring, students will meet with classmates to engage in a variety of learning activities and to learn about the service needs of people living in our society and local community. Groups will visit and work at Sacred Heart Community Service, St. Justin Food Pantry, Second Harvest Food Bank, and other local agencies. Students will then devote time towards completing a ‘Capstone Project’ in which they select one community need and create a detailed action plan for how to address that need. A Capstone Project is distinctive in that it requires a student to offer a claim which is well supported by evidence and reasoning, and provides a tangible course of action. A student who completes the Capstone Project during one of our summer sessions will fulfill all AMHS Christian Service Hours required for freshman year.

This Mitty Monarch class experience serves to address social needs of people living in our local communities while fostering our faith and relationship with one another at Archbishop Mitty.
