Hi there,
 
At Duke Summer College and Academy, we believe in a simple formula.  By combining rigorous academics with an incredibly fun residential program, we can create life-changing experiences.  This past summer, we put this to the test and discovered that it is overwhelmingly true. 
 
But don’t take our word for it.  Check out the video below and hear from our students themselves as they reflect upon their time at Duke:
Stay tuned for next month’s updates to our website, which will include exciting additions to our 2018 program such as new online courses and a one-week STEM Academy at Duke.

Best,

Nicki Charles, Ed.D.
Director of Summer College and Academy for High School Students
