Yale Summer Academy

Academic Courses & Residential Life at Yale University

Ivy League Campus, Culture and Instruction Are Yours Over Two Weeks at Yale University.

Tap into thought leaders and learn to enact change at one of America’s most prestigious universities. 

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

Students accepted into this sought-after program 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 fully executed plan to effect 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. 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.

Classes are supplemented with daily “Explore Yale” breakout sessions that introduce students to Yale’s most celebrated and picturesque museums, libraries and landmarks.
