Bulldog Scholars Academy

June 24-August 4, 2018

Bulldog Scholars Academy is a six-week, residential, pre-college experience for first-time freshmen. Designed to ignite love for learning and build strong academic foundations, Bulldog Scholars Academy provides students with the opportunity to earn six credits toward graduation. Here is a snapshot of the summer experience: 

Math: Students enroll in a college-level math course appropriate for their major. They receive structured support inside and outside the classroom to increase their chance for success.

Freshman Seminar: Students develop scholarly habits through personal exploration, reading, and inquiry. This course provides a creative space to explore ideas, think critically, construct knowledge, and develop team building and leadership skills. Upon completion, students should feel prepared for the rigors of college.

Co-curricular Activities: To provide context for learning, and offer students an opportunity to explore their roots, Bulldog Scholars Academy travels to historical landmarks, which may include Trail of Enslaved Africans, Virginia and Harriet Tubman National Monument, Maryland. 

Extra-curricular Activities:The summer will be packed with fun and inspiring activities. Last year scholars participated in team building activities, intramural sports, outdoor adventures, fitness classes, and much more.
