Several students at Wakefield County Day School, in Flint Hill, are spending their summer by extending their studies during time off from school.

Rising senior Rebecca Paulisch is attending Denison University, in Ohio, for a program geared toward gifted writers with workshops in poetry, fiction and nonfiction.

Carolina Leonard, a rising senior, will be attending the Virginia Governor’s School Latin Academy studying Latin and classical Greek.

Joseph Dowell, the past year’s student government vice president, will attend the Honors Institute at James Madison University. After going through a competitive application process, he will be one of 25 students accepted into the program.

Senior Rahmet Rahimi attended the Thomas D. Horne Leadership in the Law program. The session included mock trials at the Loudoun County Courthouse in front of real judges and juries. Students participate in a competitive application process designed to recruit only one or two students from public and private high schools in Loudoun and Fauquier counties.
