Summer Academy Overview

Each summer, Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math-Science students spend four weeks on the Northern Arizona University campus. They live in a campus residence hall, eat in the dining hall, and engage in rigorous math, laboratory science, composition and literature courses. Students are in classes Monday through Friday 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM, and on the evenings and weekends, they participate in cultural and recreational activities. The Summer Academy helps prepare students for their upcoming academic year in high school and provides them with a first-hand sense of what life is like as a college student.
