    DC Institutes for H.S. Students

    Work closely with Marymount faculty who have extensive expertise and professional connections in the field. The daily program will include classes in the mornings, field trips and other experiential learning in the afternoons, and fun activities in the evenings.

    Marymount's Summer Programs this year: 

    CJ 209 - The Criminal Justice System Gain real-life perspective on the exciting criminal justice field. Visit various museums, meet with an FBI field agent, and probe various aspects of the criminal justice system – from laws and enforcement to the courts and corrections.

    MGT 185 - The International Business Experience Learn to succeed in a diverse and global business environment with exposure to international marketing, finance, and economics. Take part in a business simulation and experience the decision-making that goes on in an international business enterprise.

    Experience campus life

    Live in a residence hall on Marymount's Main Campus in suburban Arlington, Virginia. The program fee includes housing, meals, activities, transportation to off-campus activities, and tuition for three college credits awarded upon successful completion of the program.


    The DC Summer Institutes program definitely isn't all work and no play! In the evenings and on weekends, you'll have fun with your fellow institute participants.

    Here are some potential activities:

    • Visits to DC-area museums 
    • A concert at the Kennedy Center
    • An evening tour of the monuments
    • Bowling night
    • A trip to a Major League Baseball game
    • Laser tag
    • An Iron Chef cook-off
    • Game nights and Wii tournaments 

    Space is limited and priority will be given to rising high school seniors.
