Academic Summer Camps

MVNU's two one-week, hands-on Academic Summer Camps are open to high school students entering their sophomore, junior, or senior years. Students will spend time as an MVNU Cougar, work with faculty in their area of interest, experience campus life, and participate in evening outings in the Mount Vernon area.

Do you have students who would benefit from one of our camps, but would struggle with the cost? We have scholarships available for those with financial need. Encourage them to apply!
