MELP Programs for 2019
MELP Programs for 2019
Lisa Walsh, Associate Director of Communications '84

MELP is Rectory's signature program takes place in two weeks after students return from spring break. Students eagerly anticipate MELP throughout the year for exploring a topic in depth through hands-on experiences, sometimes off campus and out of town. The program encourages alternative learning styles, creativity, and problem-solving.

This spring we are offering 16 different programs which take place as far away as California and Florida, and locally in New England.

We will be showing parents and families where are students are and what they are doing on social media starting on the week of March 18. Be sure to check Facebook and Instagram for updates.
