Choose from a Variety of Intensive Academies

Customize your academic path by choosing through a variety of Academies. These pre-college summer programs are a way to fully immerse yourself in a field of interest. Single courses are taken either in the morning or the afternoon and are combined to create a full day of courses. Academies, on the other hand, are more intensive. You can expect to participate in the Academy program both for the morning and afternoon sessions, giving ample time to explore topics in depth. The Academy courses usually meet 4-5 days per week and include homework assignments, presentations, and graded tests. You’ll receive a certificate from the university upon your successful completion of the intensive Academy courses, marking your hard work and progress. If you’ve been waiting to dive into a topic, such as law or business, then the Academy programs are a great option.
