The Academy is a short-term academic enrichment program for 16- to 17-year-old foreign nationals who are intermediate, advanced, or native English speakers. In-person Academy sessions are intensive campus-based programs that provide participants the experience of living on a U.S. campus and exploring the U.S. higher education landscape and options.
Participating students will gain knowledge about the U.S. admissions process as they build college-level academic skills. They will also have opportunities to engage with current international and/or U.S. students and develop a better understanding of the strength and diversity of the U.S higher education system. Although participating institutions will offer the same core college preparatory programming, institutions may also focus curricula on personal leadership skills, presentation skills, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics), crafting a personal statement, or related matters. Programs offer customized visits to diverse colleges and universities for students to gain an understanding of the wide range of institutions available in the United States. Programs may include exposure to large state institutions, smaller private colleges, minority-serving institutions, and/or community colleges.
EducationUSA Academy programs held on U.S. campuses offer academic classes that orient students to the U.S. higher education landscape and opportunities, prepare them to research academic and financial aid options, and equip them with skills to be successful at the undergraduate level. Programs also involve cultural activities in the local community and campus visits to nearby institutions. In-person Academy sessions range from two to four weeks in length.
