Student Testimonials

"It is a great way for a high school student to experience college.  You get to ease your way in to college through this program and it was really helpful for me."  - Elizabeth, Summer Academy 2015

"It expanded the way I thought about things and it was really cool to see my knowledge of the subject expand over the course of five weeks."  - Reuben, Summer Academy 2015

"Getting to be a part of Summer Academy taught me a lot about responsibility because it was on me to learn the material at home and be ready for class the next day.  It also really helped with organization skills."  - Nikki, Summer Academy 2015

"Summer Academy was amazing because I made life long friends, memories, and an experience I will never forget." - Anam Summer Academy 2016

Parent Testimonials

S. Gill

"I wanted to give my son an experience at a prestigious four-year university, and a chance to study a topic that interested him. From the first orientation, to the course (Public Speaking), the UCR Summer Academy did not disappoint us!  My son gained confidence by working with other college students, and engaging his professor.  He is looking forward to attending again, and exploring another college subject."  - Sean Gil, Director of Career Center, UC Riverside

"The entire UCR Summer Academy last year was a fantastic experience for my son and his friends.  They thoroughly enjoyed the university ambiance, being able to attend lectures alongside university students and taking part in the discussion classes and the labs.  They received college credit which significantly helped them with the AP Chemistry course at their high school the following year.  It raised their self esteem and confidence. This is a unique opportunity and I recommend it to any ambitious high school student."  - Azin Mobasher, PhD. Microbiology
