UVA Summer Programs for High School Students?

Hey everyone! I'm a high school junior and I'm exploring different summer opportunities. I've heard UVA has some great summer programs geared toward high school students. Can anyone share their experiences and tell me more about these programs? Thanks in advance!

Hey! I'm glad you're considering UVA for your summer plans. They do offer a variety of summer programs for high school students, mainly focused on academic enrichment and giving you a taste of college life.

One popular program is the UVA Cornerstone Summer Institute. It's a two-week residential program where you can dive into subjects like history, politics, culture, and economics. There's a good mix of lectures, group discussions, and hands-on activities. Participants also get to explore the Charlottesville area and take part in extracurricular activities and workshops tailored to their interests.

Another option to look into is the UVA Pre-College Program. This one allows you to take college courses for credit alongside UVA undergraduates. It helps you get an authentic college experience while exploring a potential major or field of study. Be aware, though, that this also requires a more intensive application process, as you need to submit high school transcripts and teacher recommendations.

In addition to these two, UVA partners with several other external summer programs. Some of them focus on specific fields like engineering or creative writing, so you might find something that aligns with your interests.

I encourage you to check out UVA's website for more information and talk to your high school counselor as well. They might have more insights about the application process or other summer opportunities that would suit you. Best of luck!
