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.
