Global Summer Academy is Washington & Jefferson College’s international academic summer program for students entering grades 8-12 in the Fall of 2016. It is our expectation that about half of our students will come from the United States and half will come from international countries like Spain, Korea, China, and many, many more. Our students choose ONE course from our list of majors, and they study that major for the entire two week period. They are immersed in their chosen study field, and our approach is to make the classwork as hands-on and direct as possible. We do not want to have baleful instructors droning on in a lecture-style format; we want our students participating in labs, making projects, and in general learning whenever possible. We want our classes to be fun, our teachers to be outgoing, energetic, smart role models, and leaders who teach by example.
