Excel Summer Academy

A Day Camp on Georgia Tech’s Main Campus 

What will the academy be like?

Our goal is to provide a glimpse into the life of a student in a postsecondary academy with each day focused on one of the following pillars of Excel: Social, Academic, Independent Living, and Career. Students will leave the program with an overview of what Tech has to offer, a broader understanding of teamwork, an overview of budgeting, and a personalized resume tailored to their skills and experiences.

Who should attend?

Rising highschool juniors or seniors and highschool graduates who are considering applying to Excel and meet the criteria for admission.
