    Overview

    Ohio University’s College of Fine Arts Summer Pre-College Programs offer students aged 14–18 the opportunity to immerse themselves fully in the fine arts, working with faculty and visiting artists to improve their skills and techniques, hone their creative vision, and create meaningful personal work––all while living on our beautiful campus in Athens, Ohio.

    Students focus intently on one area of study, allowing them insight into the future of college life in the fine arts. In addition, full days on film sets, in studios, and on stage give a glimpse of the professional worlds that they might enter. All students enroll for college credit, which can apply toward an Ohio University degree or may be transferable to another post-secondary institution.

    Pre-college students have the option to live in residence halls and experience on-campus college life fully, or may choose to commute to and from classes each day.  Either way, they’ll have the opportunity to attend not only their class sessions and visiting artist presentations but also to take advantage of all that Athens has to offer in the summertime! Extracurricular activities are organized by resident advisors and instructors and may include independent films at the Athena Cinema, musical productions and concerts, craft nights, etc. Students also have the option to take advantage of the Ping Recreation Center, or explore Athens’ many independent cafés and shops.
