Choose from one of three tracks within the Temple Summer Academy program:

Summer Owls Leadership Experience (SOLE)

The Summer Owl Leadership Experience (SOLE) allows students the opportunity to develop and expand their leadership skills. Students take a morning academic course, and then participate  in afternoon leadership workshops, a ropes course, and  trips to successful professional enterprises to practice networking and get insights from industry leaders. 

Visual Studies Academy

The Visual Studies Academy integrates a morning academic course and an afternoon studio art workshop, giving students the opportunity to earn college credit, create inspiring artwork, and access excellent faculty and facilities in partnership with the Tyler School of Art. This interdisciplinary approach allows students to develop skills as makers and critical thinkers, and prepares them for future success in college and beyond.
