Georgetown University

Washington, D.C.

The programs offered at Georgetown University during the summer allow your child to be a summer Hoya. By taking part in one of the Georgetown programs, your child can lay the foundation for their future by joining the University’s tradition of academic excellence and cultural diversity in Washington, D.C.

Students get to live on campus, attend classes side-by-side with undergraduate students and learn from distinguished faculty and prominent Washington-area guest speakers.

The Institutes Summer Program immerses students in an accelerated, hands-on learning experience while focusing on a particular area of study within an eight-day comprehensive program. There are six subject areas to choose from, including medicine, law, science, politics (international relations, national security and counterintelligence), business (entrepreneurship and sports industry management) and arts and humanities (leadership, creative writing and digital journalism).

The Fundamentals Program at Georgetown University allows high school students to garner a real-life college experience while living on campus and studying one of five subject areas. Once students become enrolled in the program, they will have the opportunity to learn new material via group projects, lectures, class discussions and so much more.

The Summer Honors Intensive Program isn’t open to those who are faint of heart. It’s a program that spans 10 weeks and allows participants to enroll in a number of college classes that enable them to earn up to 12 college credits, which is the minimum full-semester course load at most universities.

Lastly, The College Preparatory Program is a three-week experience where students will acquire all the necessary logistics and techniques to become proficient in math, skilled in the art of writing and a test-taking whiz. Georgetown’s summer programs will not only expand their education, but will also encourage new friendships that will impact their immediate future. —Rebecca Norris
