Explore our Majors
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.
Explore our Program
Super Saturday is one of the most popular features of VSA and one of the things that sets us apart from any other summer program.
At VSA the world is our classroom. From the outdoor amphitheatre to walks along the river, to sitting by the campfire, to sleeping under the stars, to sharing computer labs with other classes and comparing lab data, we weave our studies in and out of the real world, to provide real learning beyond the classroom.
Enrollment is open to rising 8th through 12th-grade students from around the globe.
