Take a few minutes to review the courses being offered. Choose from the following program options:

One-Week Seminars offer courses in Arts and Culture, Business, Leadership and Sustainability and Social Justice.

StudentsThese fast-paced, one-week courses offer students an orientation to a particular subject. Classes are noncredit, but give students a chance to learn about topics they are considering pursuing in college.

Six-Week Academy 
Students in the six-week academy will challenge themselves as they take classes alongside current college students. Students may choose from any two 100- or 200-level undergraduate courses offered in Loyola’s 2015 Summer Sessions course catalog or a specialized science course. Students can also choose a college-level biology or chemistry course specifically for high-achieving high school students.
