Academic Life

Taking on the demands of college-level study, compressed into five weeks, is challenging for any student. For this reason, we encourage Pre-College students to study what they want to study, not so much what they think they ought to study. Choose a class in an area where you feel your strengths lie. Or delve into an unexplored subject to challenge your perceptions and discover new fields of knowledge. The path you take to prepare for your future as a college student is as unique as you are.

We find more choices inspire creativity. That’s why we encourage you to get creative with your curriculum and give you choices from our broad roster of classes. When you pave your own path, you’re bound to connect different ideas, fields and ways of thinking in new and innovative ways.
