Join the School of Architecture, Art and Historic Preservation (SAAHP) for an intensive four-week Summer Academy in Architecture! The Academy is offered exclusively to high school students who have successfully completed their sophomore or junior year of study, and runs from July 9 - August 5, 2017. The program offers a 3 college-credit curriculum: ARCH 100 "Exploring Architecture" for US residents only. International students may attend the Academy program but do not receive college credit.
The Summer Academy offers a variety of studio, seminar and field experiences, extracurricular activities and field trips, allowing students to understand architecture as a possible area of college study, and as a career. Participants gain a broader view of the field while developing skills and portfolio materials to add to their applications to professional school. Workshops, lectures, demonstrations and off-campus experiences complement daily design studios.
The 2017 Summer Academy will be offered from July 9 - August 5, 2017.
Summer Academy students study in the School’s award-winning facilities alongside undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in SAAHP’s summer programs. Interactions among the Summer Academy programs through extracurricular events, lectures and field trips give the participants in both programs a better understanding of the interactive possibilities within the School of Architecture, Art and Historic Preservation. Students are also advised on the college admissions process and portfolio development in preparation for college applications. Supervised dormitory life, with student activities programming on evenings and weekends, is included in the program. In addition, students who are US citizens are enrolled in ARCH 100: Exploring Architecture and receive 3 college credits (credit option not available to international students).
