Site information

Summer Studies takes place at twelve college campuses and at the Duke University Marine Lab.

During each session, students live in college residence halls for the duration of the program and eat in the campus dining facilitates. Each site offers a variety of courses that take advantage of the host college’s unique academic resources. See our Academic Life and Student Life sections for more details.

Pick-up and drop-off arrangements can be made for students flying to site locations.

Age and qualification division

To ensure that students are placed in an academic and social environment that matches their needs, all sites are designated for specific age groups and qualification levels.

Some sites have Center-level classes, while others offer Academy-level classes. The only exception is the Duke University Marine Lab, which both Center and Academy students can attend.

Sites are also split by grade. Some sites host only seventh- and eighth-grade students, and others host eighth-, ninth-, and tenth-grade students. Eighth graders can choose which age group is the best academic and social fit for them.

The average class enrollment is sixteen to eighteen students at all sites.
