Summer Academy


Summer Academy is a one-week overnight program designed for students to experience college life and delve deeper into subjects they are passionate about and may wish to explore further. Most courses are taught by Centenary University Professors.  

The Structure

Courses are held Monday through Friday from 9-4pm, with orientation on Sunday for both commuters and residential students. Each program offers overnight accommodations in air-conditioned residence halls with three meals and evening activities. Accommodations are limited on a first come first serve basis. Residential students should register early to assure space. Commuters are provided lunch daily and may also sign up for a dinner plan if they intend to stay for evening activities. Residential students arrive on Sunday and depart on Saturday morning. Evening activities begin after dinner at 7pm. Students staying for both weeks have the option of going home for the weekend or staying on campus between programs.


While the schedule is subject to amendments, this gives an overview of what the program will look like.
