The School of Architecture, Art and Historic Preservation (SAAHP) offers an intensive four-week Summer Academy in Architecture for high school students who have successfully completed their junior year of study. The program offers a curriculum with 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. Students 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.
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, this year's Summer Academy in Architecture will provide students with college credits.
The 2013 Summer Academy will be offered from July 7 – August 3. The comprehensive 2013 fee is $4,100, inclusive of tuition, fees, housing and meals. Applications, including a nonrefundable $300 deposit, are due by May 15, 2013. The remaining balance is due by June 21, 2013. Scholarships are available!
