Yale Summer Academy | offered by Julian Krinsky Camps & Programs

Sponsored by Yale University, the Yale Summer Academy (offered by Julian Krinsky Camps & Programs) is an immersive, innovative academic experience for high school students, designed to develop the next generation’s top thinkers and change-makers.

During this sought-after program, you’ll spend two weeks applying interdisciplinary knowledge and reasoning to mission-minded planning. Working in groups, you’ll zero in on a social, local or global issue, then collaborate to develop a functional plan to inspire positive change. The program culminates in a social entrepreneurship focused initiative presented at the Program Symposium held on Yale’s campus, and open to family and friends.

A rotation of academic enrichment classes is woven throughout these two weeks, imparting all necessary reasoning, rationale and topic-related knowledge. Your unique schedule incorporates five academic enrichment classes taught by Yale Graduate students, including; Communications, Economics, Environmental Science, Politics and Technology. From policy to public speaking, you’ll emerge with a stronger sense of the world around you and its relationship to your own strengths and skills.

There’s no app for that! You've got to be here.

As the following photos will show you, there actually isn’t an app for this summer experience! You can’t login remotely and you can’t join us via Google hangout - it just wouldn’t be the same. You have to be here; doing it, living it and being a part of it.

So, go ahead and explore these Yale Summer Academy images.
