The only Orange County program of its kind to be offered by a university, the Summer Academies in the Arts are part of a movement by UC Irvine's Claire Trevor School of the Arts to provide meaningful opportunities for the community to engage in Arts, Dance, Drama, Music, and Technology on campus and to contribute to youth development. We offer college and career preparatory intensives for high school and middle school students, as well as exploratory arts and learning camps for elementary school students in collaboration with the Arts & Learning Conservatory, to enhance students’ 21st century skills, support college and career goals, and build self-confidence and leadership.
Students get to experience life as an undergraduate arts major, in which they receive practical and technical instruction in small classes taught by graduate instructors, professionals in the field and, in some cases, CTSA faculty. With rigorous college-level coursework (and the option of receiving university credit), social and professional networking, and even having the option to live in residence on campus, it's the perfect opportunity for learning and development in a fun, challenging environment! So what are you waiting for? Enroll now!
