Are you considering a career in architecture or design? Are you working on your portfolio for college admission? Or are you simply curious about design? The Summer Academy at The Boston Architectural College offers an opportunity to study design with a hands-on approach and with no previous design experience required.

Summer Academy has been introducing high school students to the fields of architecture and spatial design since 1973. Students experiment with materials, build structures, test professional design software, visit professional firms, and explore buildings like libraries and museums in Boston.

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

Tuition: $1,500. Art materials and transportation to field trips are included.
