Summer Programs at Hiram
Summer Programs
Hiram College has increased the number of summer academy opportunities this year. They provide an enriched summer learning experience for high school students with a wide range of interests. Our faculty and students participate as mentors and teachers in these summer academies, giving high school students an exposure to and preparation for college-level academics. Summer academies at Hiram College are hands-on, so although some classroom instruction is involved, students will spend much of their time applying their skills in the lab, on the stage, in the field and more!

The collaboration offers students a unique combination of undergraduate coursework and community service that prepares them for work in international development.
