Students attend workshops and have an all-access pass to the university’s extensive facilities, resources and libraries. Workshops may include demonstrations, lectures, studio work and local field trips, and are taught by SCAD professors, alumni or select graduate students. To provide maximum individual attention and collaborative interaction between students and instructors, class size is small, with generally 20 or fewer students in each workshop. Organized daily social and cultural activities create an authentic experience of life as a SCAD student in the city.

Sewanee: The University of the South: Sewanne, TN
The Choral Institute
June 23-30
During the Choral Institute high-school students will experience singing worship services at All Saints' Chapel, interacting with orchestral musicians, learning about the music program at Sewanee and engaging in social activities on the campus. The anticipated cost per student for the Choral Institute is $950. This will cover lodging, meals and materials for the weeklong Sewanee experience. The University Choir is the oldest student organization on campus. The choir participated in the founding of the university in October of 1860 singing Psalm 100 as part of the service. Currently there are 50 undergraduate students from different faith backgrounds and traditions that sing in the choir, which is 3 percent of the student body. There is a great tradition that has been established by the choir by leading Episcopal services at All Saints Chapel as well as all of the major academic services at the University. Our goal is to recruit talented musicians from across the country so that they can learn and appreciate the tradition of this ensemble in the context of the University.

Sewanee: The University of the South: Sewanne, TN
Sewanee Environmental Institute
June 23-July 6
Sewanee's Pre-College Field Studies Experience is a summer residential program for talented students who are passionate about the outdoors and interested in advancing their knowledge and skills in the study of the environment. Led by full-time faculty at the University of the South and utilizing its 13,000-acre campus atop the ecologically diverse Cumberland Plateau, the program provides an interdisciplinary introduction to environmental studies. This two-week experience explores the diverse ecosystems of the Cumberland Plateau: its forests, coves, streams, lakes, wetlands, and caves. Students participate in ecological exploration with senior faculty examining the plant and animal species that inhabit these ecosystems and use archeological techniques, along with GIS and GPS technology, to study how people have used and changed these ecosystems over time. Students learn how conservation strategies are currently being employed to protect the integrity of Plateau ecosystems into the future. The experience is conducted almost exclusively in the field, featuring field mapping equipment, digital photography, ecological assessment techniques and group research projects. As part of this experience, students have the opportunity to take part in a number of outdoor recreational activities such as hiking, bouldering, canoeing, caving, and mountain biking.

Sewanee: The University of the South: Sewanne, TN
Sewanee Young Writers Conference
June 30-July 13
Our workshops in playwriting, fiction, poetry and literary nonfiction are led by writers of significant accomplishment and promise: our former workshop leaders have won the Roerich poetry prize, had their books named Notable Books of the Year by the New York Times, been recognized by The New Yorker as among the twenty best young American novelists, and been featured by Oprah’s Book Club. And they are not just good at their craft: they are writers who love to teach and have experience working with teenagers in the classroom. The workshops have no more than twelve students, and we enroll a total of about seventy young writers. Because we keep our numbers low, our teachers really get to know their students, and vice-versa. We also make space in the schedule for one-on-one conferences between students and teachers, so that individual needs can be addressed outside the group setting.

Sewanee: The University of the South: Sewanne, TN
Sewanee's Theological Debate Camp
July 16-24
At its core, SUMMA Student Theological Debate Society is a debate camp for high school students, but it is so much more than that. It is a camp of study, of laughter, of faith, and of fun! SUMMA was founded on two premises. The first is that debating leads to clearer thinking. The second is that clearer thinking can open pathways deeper into Christian faith, and hope, and love. So becoming a good debater is not the final goal in SUMMA, as useful as that is. Nor is becoming a more reasonable and careful thinker our final goal, as important as that is. In SUMMA, we strive toward deeper understanding of the Christian faith by probing and debating questions with skill and intellectual distinction: In SUMMA, that’s the prize.
