Each summer, the Center for Multicultural Student Services sponsors Summer Programming aimed towards high school students. The Female Institute and the Male Academy are two-week residential programs designed to provide an intense academic and developmental experience for rising 9th—12th grade students.
Both programs offer an array of experiences that encourage the pursuit of positive and self-directed life choices through post-secondary educational opportunities. They also provide academic, social and cultural strategies that prepare participants to enhance their academic profiles, build their levels of self-awareness and self-esteem, and broaden their potential career and life goals.
This academic enrichment experience includes daily classes in Math, Writing, and History with top tier instructors from across the country. Other sessions provided to enhance personal development include test preparation, personal and social problem solving, recreation, leadership skills, community service, environmental stewardship, and teambuilding activities. The goal of the program is to motivate young students to seek higher education and develop positive relationships within peer groups.
Dates and applications for the summer program will be available on the homepage in early spring. If you have questions, please contact the CMSS office at (540) 568-6636.
