Boston Architectural College
320 Newbury Street
Summer Academy at the Boston Architectural College (BAC) is a design exploration program for high school students. Summer Academy capitalizes on Boston as an urban laboratory to explore and develop fundamental skills and highlight the role quality design plays in shaping and improving the communities in which we live. Our month long series of studios focuses on building design and critical thinking skills including drawing, collage, photography, model-making, and the mapping of complex systems. You'll work with new materials and discover new ways of imagining the world around us.
Summer Academy has been part of the BAC curriculum since 1973 and is open to all high-school students entering grades 10 and above. Studio leaders and faculty are emerging design professionals and advanced graduate students from Boston-area design schools including Boston Architectural College, Harvard Graduate School of Design, MIT, Northeastern University, Rhode Island School of Design, and Wentworth Institute of Technology. Students leave the program with a clearer sense of potential design professions, projects to strengthen a portfolio for college, and an expanded understanding of the impact of design around them and the ways design can change communities and improve lives.
