Our summer program for high school students (ages 15 to 18) is modeled after St. John’s discussion-based, interdisciplinary method of teaching the great books. A hands-on introduction to college life, our program helps students hone their reading, critical thinking, and discussion skills. With engaging workshops and awesome off-campus excursions, the Summer Academy is a blast. 


“My classroom experience at the Summer Academy was amazing! I had fun tackling big ideas together with diverse and intelligent people in an exciting way I haven’t before. I felt the discussions expanded my mind and the way I think.”
