Summer academy registration is now open!
Register for the Camp

Are you a rising high school Junior or Senior thinking about attending college? Now is the time to start preparing! In our week-long University Prep (U-Prep) program, you’ll receive the guidance and support you and your family may need to feel more confident and prepared through the college choice process.

Through the U-Prep program, instructors will de-mystify the college application process and help students build a college list that matches their academic and personal goals or interests. Student campers will attend workshops and seminars on topics such as college essay writing, building a professional resume, and understanding state and federal financial aid programs. Campers will also experience a wide range of guest speakers from the University of Georgia who will offer advice, tips, and tricks that every incoming college student needs to succeed. U-Prep's programming will prepare students to tackle the transition from high school to college and will encourage the formation of habits needed to establish a healthy lifestyle while in college.

The U-Prep program is the perfect starting point for students who are just beginning to prepare for college, but it is also a great next step for students who have already begun to prepare but need additional support. If you have any specific questions about the topics covered or if this camp would be the right fit for you, please contact us via email at summeracademy@georgiacenter.uga.edu.
