Summer Institute (August 2020)


For Summer 2019 the Architecture Summer Program will be offering two tracks on the FAU Boca Raton Campus. The sessions are scheduled for June 15-26, 2020, July 13-24, and August 3-14, 2020. The program will be open to rising sophomores, juniors or seniors in high school; recent high school graduates; and students in their first two years of college. All students with or without design background are welcome. This program is not for college credit but students will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program.

Throughout the program, students will produce a variety of work that can be used as part of a portfolio when applying to colleges. Students will have the opportunity to display and participate in a final critique of their work. Enrollment is on a first-come, first served basis and space is limited.

Daily Schedule

The schedule is 9am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday. Participants will engage in space planning, drawing, and model building. Participants will also have the opportunity to take field trips to visit local architecture firms as well as the downtown Fort Lauderdale campus where the upper division architecture program is located. Interaction with faculty members and upper division architecture students help to provide a foundation for a memorable architectural school experience.


Registration Fee of $880 will be due with the application package. For early registration, payment of $880 and application materials must be received by May 14, 2020; by June 12, 2020 for the second session; and July 2,2020 for the third session.
