One-Week Seminars


‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌We believe it’s never too early to get on your path to success. Seminar courses give high school students the opportunity to learn more about different fields of study offered here at Loyola and to explore career possibilities. Seminars involve hands-on activities and field trips. Students will learn in a diverse environment while engaging with like-minded individuals. Additionally, they will deepen their understanding and development of their own unique interests and identity.

Students may choose to take one (1) non-credit course during any of the available weeks. Program participants are required to attend Student & Family Orientation on Sunday prior to the first day of class. Each course meets Monday–Friday from 9:00am-12:00pm (breaks for lunch) then resumes from 1:00pm-3:00pm. 

Courses are offered in the following subject areas:

  1. Business and Leadership
  2. Pre-Health and Wellness
  3. Psychology
  4. STEM Fields

Seminar Session Dates: Students will move in on Sunday between 9am -12pm and move out Saturday after the program session between 9am -12pm. Student and Family Orientation will be held on Sunday from 1pm - 3pm.
