Summer Programs Offer Taste of College Life, Engineering at Catholic Univ. of America

The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., is offering high school summer programs in engineering, drama and architecture, according to the University’s website.

“Engineering New Frontiers” is a weeklong camp, the “High School Drama Institute” is a two-week program and “Experiences in Architecture” is a three-week workshop.  The University reports:

At Engineering New Frontiers, students will work closely with CUA engineering faculty members to explore the wide variety of engineering opportunities in our society.  Through classes, demonstrations, and hands-on experiments, students will experience what college engineering majors and professional engineers do.  Living on campus, students also get a "taste" of college and exposure to the best of Washington, D.C., including special museum tour, sporting events, and various other safe recreational activities.

[Drama Institute:] Increase your ability to develop and demonstrate acting skills that require you to assume and sustain roles, use your voice effectively, and communicate character through movement and gesture. Draw inspiration from CUA drama instructors and theatre professionals. Immerse yourself in theatre on a college campus collaborating with others who share your passion for this performing art.

The Experiences in Architecture program will better prepare you for the rigors of architecture school, giving you a head start, as well as acquaint you with campus life at the university level. Students who have participated in EIA’s summer workshop, or a similar pre-college program, are better prepared for success at the university level.

To apply for any of these programs, please see the University’s website.

The Catholic University of America is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
