Augustana Summer Academy 2015
High school students can experience a unique college atmosphere and summer adventure by taking a course in the Augustana Summer Academy.
The academy's courses range from one to five days and take an active, hands-on approach within a close-knit learning community based on the beautiful Augustana campus. You'll find fun outside of class, too, through field trips, evening activities and ventures off campus — maybe even on the Mississippi River.
Classes are taught by popular Augustana professors. Investigate your interests, whatever they may be, and have fun while enriching your education on Augustana's campus this summer.
Registration for 2015 has not yet opened.
