Summer Discovery's 53rd Year
Summer Discovery is proud to tie a bow on our 53rd summer, offering pre-college academic, enrichment, and internship programs to high school and middle school students from the U.S. and around the world.
Amongst our 14 campuses in the U.S., U.K., and Singapore, Summer Discovery welcomed and nurtured more than 7,000 students from over 70 countries. Programs ran from 2 weeks to 6 weeks and more than 300 courses were offered in subjects including Business and Leadership, Medicine, Law, STEM, Fashion and more.
Our newest campuses, University of Miami and Yale NUS College Singapore enjoyed a successful first summer. At Yale NUS, Professor Paul Wilt empowered students to learn about Global Leadership and Citizenship, and the philosophy of learning by doing. Meanwhile at University of Miami, we hosted 381 students, including 23 adventurous students in the Shark Conservation program. They earned community service hours by examining, tagging, and taking blood samples from sharks in the Florida Keys while learning about the importance of preserving animal life.
At other U.S. campuses, students at University of Colorado Boulder built robots, explored artificial intelligence, learned about aerospace technology, and also enjoyed a healthy hike in Eldorado Canyon. University of Michigan students explored careers in medicine and got to see the inside of a medical transport helicopter.
UCLA students enjoyed a bustling, enriching experience taking classes at the Anderson School of Management in the Business of Entertainment, Media, and Sports, and Digital Marketing and Social Media. They were also invited to attend the famed ESPY awards, which was a remarkable experience.
Discovery Internship students in Boston, New York City, and London worked in Fashion, Film Production, Public Relations, I.T., and Medicine, and got a first-hand look at a possible career.
Helping students learn about themselves, become independent, build confidence, and discover their passions is what Summer Discovery is all about. We help students build the human skills that are so vital for the digital future.
We are looking forward to our 54th year!
