For almost 40 years, Clemson University has offered an academic summer experience for gifted middle and high school students. In addition to challenging courses, we provide opportunities for fun, friendship, and a true Clemson experience.
A balanced schedule of educational, recreational, and cultural activities will help broaden your academic skills and develop your creative abilities. You will engage in exciting classes taught by Clemson faculty during the day and, in the evening, have the chance to go swimming or bowling, participate in a campus scavenger hunt, play a rousing game of ultimate frisbee or capture the flag, and visit special university facilities such as Fike Recreation Center, Bowman Field, the Student Union, Death Valley, and many more!
