Academic Camps High Schoolers Love!.
Centenary Summer Scholars is entering our 10th summer! We give rising 8th–12th grade students the opportunity to immerse themselves in one course of study for a full week. Finding academic camps high schoolers actually enjoy is very difficult! Centenary Summer Scholars is the best way to give your student the University experience as they prepare for their next steps.
Students choose one intensive course of study at the time of registration – their Major. The academic camps are designed to be fun and feature hands-on learning. At our academic camps high schoolers may sign up for multiple sessions, choosing a different course each session; students may also benefit from multiple weeks in the same course. The program is built around one-week modules, but to encourage multi-week attendance, we offer discounts for students who attend two, three or all four sessions.
Our curriculum is designed around student involvement. Teachers incorporate student needs and interest into the lessons. Each class becomes a unique exploration. All courses are hands-on and project-based. In all courses, students collaborate, critique, plan and present.
Socialization and friendship building are integral to our academic camps high schoolers love. It is very important to give students the chance to meet one another and hang out in a warm supportive environment. This is one of our most treasured experiences at CSS – new friends. Just another reason why we sell out year after year!
