Overview

Designed for high school students who are curious about starting a career in architecture, interior design, landscape design, and more, The Boston Architectural College’s (BAC) Early College Program helps you launch your future in studying design with leading professionals and peers from around the globe.

For over 15 years, the BAC's Summer Academy has provided high school students (grades 9-12) with hands-on design and material exercises. Now offered virtually to include students outside of the New England area, you will receive class materials through the mail to follow the workshop simultaneously alongside your peers and BAC faculty member.

No design experience is required! You’ll participate in daily discussions through synchronous webinars, virtual reality case study buildings and professional firm visits, and hands-on design and building in teams. Our students are aspiring artists, architects, interior designers, engineers, industrial designers, computer game creators, landscape designers, and more.

Students in 11th and 12th grade who complete the BAC Summer Academy program earn 1.5 college credits, and are eligible for a $2,000 scholarship towards one of the BAC's undergraduate programs.
