Academic Camps for High Schoolers.

Centenary Summer Scholars give rising 8th–12th grade students the opportunity to immerse themselves in one course of study for a full week.  Our academic camps for high schoolers is the best way to give a student  a College 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. Students may sign up for multiple sessions, choosing a different course each session; students in our academic camps for high schoolers 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 or all three sessions.

The curriculum for each Major in our academic camps for high schoolers 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.

“I would recommend this camp to a friend because I learned a lot about the career I’m considering, got experience about what college is like, and made a lot of new friends.”

“One of my favorite things was leaving campus to get a better feel of the animal field. Although the dissections were pretty cool, I enjoyed the information I got out of the lectures as well.”
