The summer program is designed for students 12-26 years at intermediate or advanced levels. Class placement is based on the technical needs of each student and is determined by the faculty. Any adjustments to class placement will be given during the first week of each session of the program.

The dates for the Summer Intensive are:
2 Four Week Sessions: June 8 to July 3, 2014 or July 6 to August 1, 2014

Full eight-week session: June 8 to August 1, 2014

Because space is limited, students are urged to apply early.
