Roanoke College Summer Academy

The Roanoke College Summer Academy provides a true college experience.  Students will learn from Roanoke professors, take part in college prep workshops, and spend time with peer mentors.  Students will also enjoy a real taste of college life - dining, social events, and athletics.  This will give students a strong foundation to explore and to prepare for college.

The Summer Academy is for rising high school sophomores, upperclassmen and incoming college freshmen who are interested in having an immersive college experience, being academically challenged, and working towards a smooth transition into the academic and social life of college. Month-Long Research and Summer Immersion programs can also give you college credit.
