Curious about design, a career in architecture, interior design, landscape design, or are you working on a portfolio for college admissions?

Participate at the 2020 Virtual Summer Academy hosted by Boston Architectural College (BAC). The BAC's Virtual Summer Academy offers the unique opportunity to study design with peers from around the globe and leading design professionals. No design experience is required!

For over 15 years, the BAC's Summer Academy has provided high school students with hands-on design and material exercises. Going ‘Virtual' in 2020, students will receive the materials through the mail to follow simultaneously while the full-scale is being executed by the BAC faculty member. Daily discussions in synchronous webinars will lead the student exercises. Case study buildings and professional firm visits through virtual reality will parallel the design/build teams of students in developing and experiencing each project.

Students in 11th and 12th grade who complete the BAC Summer Academy program earn 1.5 college credits and are eligible for a $2,000 scholarship towards one of the BAC's undergraduate programs.
