Do you want to see what college is really like?
We want you to join us this summer in the world-class city of Chicago! In addition to earning college credit at a nationally recognized university, you'll meet new friends from around the world—all while you explore the sights and sounds of the city—at museums, sporting events, and cultural festivals.
Sound like fun? See what a typical day looks like for Summer Scholars. Or, take a look at some of last year's activities!
Take a few minutes to review the courses being offered. Choose from the following formats:
One-Week Seminars (June 22–28, July 6–12, July 13–19)
These 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.
Three-Week Institutes (June 30–July 18 or July 21–August 8)
Scholars enrolling in the three-week seminars can select from classes designed specifically for high school students. Meeting Monday through Friday, these courses combine both in-class instruction and hands-on activities in order to immerse students in the college culture. Students will earn three hours of college credit.
Six-Week Academy (June 30–August 8)
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 2014 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.
*Courses may change based on availability.
