    Summer Academy

    The Summer Academy is a high school pre-college program for rising grades 9-12. The program is held as two one-week intensives in July. Courses are taught by Centenary University Professors. 

    Summer Academy: PSYCHOLOGY: Inside the Mind of a killer

    Students will be introduced to why people turn to crime, specifically serial killing through the use of case studies, videos, and other information. We will explore the different aspects of why a person chooses this as a reaction to life - drugs, trauma, brain-based issues, genetics, and mental illnesses. The students will role-play being the psychologist in some of these cases. There will be many activities that will help the high school student understand the psychological theory as well as apply it to criminals.
