About Summercore Inc.Founded in '82, Summercore Inc. is the creation of Steve Bergen and Lynne Schalman. In training teachers, we pride ourselves first on being teachers! From 75-80, Lynne and Steve were heads of the English and Math departments at Wooster School. From 87-94, Steve was Computer Coordinator at Concord Academy. From 94-2002, Steve was Computer Coordinator at Noble and Greenough School, moving that school from the dark ages to being one of the leading schools for technology in the country. In 2002, Steve joined The Chapin School as CIO. In 2007, Steve decided to take his daughter's challenge and took a job in Harlem as CIO of The Children's Storefront.
What is the Five Day AgendaThis "original" 5 day marathon through hardware, software and humanware provides an in-depth Course in Computer Usage, culminating in our Summercore Carnival!
What are the Costs and Details
The cost of Summercore?
One Day Workshops On-Site for your FacultyOver the past 15 years, we have conducted over 100 workshops for Independent Schools across the country. These one day sessions have been useful in stimulating a variety of teachers and administrators and helping to energize the school community in terms of themes of computer usage.

Announcing a new service of Summercore Inc.: Curriculum Web Pages
Overview? As part of our business, we are now creating curriculum web pages for schools. These pages are custom-designed for you corresponding to specific topics in your curriculum. We post the pages for you so that you and/or your students can easily access them, e.g. www.summercore33.com/flhs. You or a programmer at your school can then take the source code and post onto your own school?s web pages if desired.
Rationale? searching the web and finding first-rate links for 10 different topics in a specific class takes time and lots of know-how. Once the links are found, bookmarking them is far less useful than having them easily available on the web so that a variety of of students and teachers can access from multiple computers at school or at home.
example: A teacher from French Lick High School lists 10 specific novels from 10 books and sends us the e-mail request. We create the web page, post it on www.summercore33.com/flhs within a few days.
