High School Summer Institute Applications Open through June 21

April 16, 2013

The High School Summer Institute is an intensive 3-week program for creative high school students who have completed their sophomore, junior, or senior year of study and who want to immerse themselves in the visual, media and communication arts. Students spend three full weeks exploring their ideas, developing the technical skills that bring their ideas to life, and earning college credit while they’re at it!

Students will study with the same working professional and scholars who teach Columbia’s Undergraduates and hone their craft using Columbia’s state-of-the-art facilities—film and video production and post-production studios, photography labs, animation labs, graphic design labs, dance studios, concert halls, theater stages, a radio station, art studios, performance spaces and, more!

The program runs from July 8 – July 26, and will end with a program wide showcase.

Classes meet five days a week, Monday through Friday. Three-credit-hour classes meet for 3 hours a day—from either 9 a.m. to noon or 1 to 4 p.m., with an hour break for lunch at noon.

Admissions Application Deadline: June 21
Registration Deadline: June 28
