Immersive study in a key area of interest is both a meaningful opportunity for growth and a worthwhile addition to a college application. We’re continuing our series on our favorite summer intensives for teens, grouped by subject area. We’re focusing on selective, highly regarded programs that offer exceptional instruction. Many of these programs are online this summer and some are still accepting applicants. Be sure to check program websites for details about application deadlines and entrance requirements.
Here are a few of our favorite programs that focus on arts and writing:
Otis Summer of Art
Rutgers Summer Acting Conservatory
Asian American Journalists Association JCamp
Iowa Young Writers Studio
Kenyon Young Writers Workshop
Sewanee Young Writers Conference (selective, but not too selective)
Do you have a suggestion for an arts or writing program we should add to our list? Please share your experience with us; we’d love to hear from you!
