The academies are being offered at 18 of Oklahoma’s college and university campuses in May, June and July. Twenty-nine different academies will be offered statewide and last from four days to two weeks. Some academies require students to live in the campus residence halls, while others require that students travel to and from campus each day
"Since 1990, Summer Academies have provided thousands of Oklahoma middle and high school students the opportunity to experience the college campus environment while exploring new and exciting career options,” Chancellor Glen D. Johnson said. “This program offers young people the chance to study with top professors and explore hands-on learning that exceeds anything they’ve encountered in a traditional classroom. After attending our Summer Academies, students are more likely to attend college and hopefully have a broader perspective about the value of a college education."
