SFU Summer Academies are one-week, residential, immersive programs for high school students who are currently in grades 10 and 11 (and are at least 15 years old) and are interested in pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering, arts, or mathematics. This year we are offering programs in chemistry, theatre, engineering design, environmental science and watershed restoration, pre-med, and cybersecurity and computer science.
Academies will be held the weeks of June 25-30 and July 9-14, 2023. Dates of academies are noted beside each academy. Thanks to generous funding, most academies are offered at the discounted rate of $550; the Environmental Science and Engineering Academy is $150. This includes all instruction materials, plus room and board on our beautiful campus.
Participants will be eligible for a $1,000/year scholarship (up to four years) to SFU if enrolling as a full time SFU student within 28 months of high school graduation, and receive one college credit.
