Interactive, project-based classes.

Your program will be a mix of class sessions with your instructors, and time to work on your own or in a small group. Every workshop is designed to be as interactive as possible. Your non-credit workshops are designed to introduce you to the key concepts of various academic fields through project-based learning, often through work in small groups. 

Academic and professional enrichment.

You will choose to attend either a professional development or college readiness "success strategies" seminar each day, where you will build your skills in small groups with other students.
