VSA gives rising 8th through 12th grade students the opportunity to immerse themselves in one course of study for a two-week period. Faculty incorporate students’ needs and interests into the lessons so that each class becomes a unique exploration. All courses are hands-on and project based where students can practice the critical skills of collaboration, critique, project planning, and presentation.
Students have the opportunity to study one course in depth. We call that their major. In addition to the studies associated with their major, students will also get to choose classes from our list of electives. Our electives are designed to be short, fun introductions to interesting academic pursuits.
We have gone to great lengths to ensure each class is fun, rewarding, intensive and hands–on … in short, awesome.
