SUMMER ACADEMY REGISTRATION OPENS ON FEBRUARY 23, 2016.
Thinking about college? Now is the time to start preparing! In our University Prep Program, you’ll receive the guidance and advice you need to feel more confident and prepared for your academic future. We’ll de-mystify the college application process, share financial aid and scholarship resources, and help you find schools that fit your academic goals and extra-curricular interests. You’ll attend workshops and seminars on topics such as Personal Statement & Essay Writing, Study Skills, Independent Living, Conflict Resolution and more! Not only will this program help you prepare to apply to the schools of your choice, but it will open your eyes to the exciting and fun experiences that college can offer. You’ll stay in a residence hall on the beautiful University of Georgia campus, eat in the dining commons, swim at Legion Pool, and explore campus and downtown Athens. This program is the perfect starting point for your college career!
Ages: 16-17, or students who will be high school juniors or seniors in Fall 2016
Not quite ready for University Prep? Students age 13-15 can explore a variety of college options in our College Preview camp.

Overnight students will check in at the residence hall on Sunday evening and check out on Saturday morning. Activities take place all over the UGA campus and Athens. During the program, students will travel around by foot, bus and university vehicle. We will have social activities and fun field trips planned for the students during the week. More details will be available in your confirmation email and in the welcome email sent out three weeks before camp begins.
Overnight Camp - $950
Students must be seriously interested in pursuing college academics. University Prep students must demonstrate maturity and responsibility, as they will have several hours of free time during the day when they are allowed to explore campus unaccompanied by staff members.
Students who need financial assistance are encouraged to request it as early as possible, and before registering for camp. Forms will be available for download from this page as soon as registration opens. The deadline to apply for financial assistance is April 20, 2016. Notification of financial assistance will be emailed out the first week of May, but could be sent as late as three weeks before your camp begins if funds are still available. Awards range from 50-65% of the total cost of the camp, so students should be prepared to pay 35%-50% of the cost upon notification of financial assistance. Payment plans can be arranged, but all payments must be received no later than two weeks before camp begins. If you have any questions about the process, please call us at 706-542-3537 or email us at email@example.com.
