At Vanderbilt Summer Academy, highly gifted students can soar—learning at a rapid pace in a community of their true peers. As a VSA student, you will live on campus and take advanced courses with Vanderbilt professors, lecturers, and graduate students. You might go on rounds with doctors at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, study nanotechnology with a PhD candidate in an engineering lab, cull through Vanderbilt’s Civil War archives, or let a published author get you started on the next bestselling novel. Outside the classroom, our carefully selected residential staff plan fun and unique social and recreational activities, supervise the dining and residence halls, and help make sure you have an amazing Vanderbilt experience!
