Weekend Schedule

Convenient options for the busy student

“I gained a lot of knowledge, not only about neuroscience, but also about politics, ethics, China's environmental policies, Wall Street, writing, and a host of different topics that I didn't expect to walk away with knowledge of. I also really enjoyed meeting so many people across the United States and entire world.”
– Rashmi A., Summer 2020 Immersion student

Weekend Coursework

All courses during the Academic Year Immersion program are offered on Saturdays or Sundays in two-hour increments, in either morning or and afternoon sessions.

Students can choose up to four courses per term to pursue over the course of ten weeks in the fall or spring terms. We recommend that students take between one and three courses per term.

Morning and Afternoon Courses

Courses will be offered in distinct two-hour increments in the morning and afternoon.

Morning courses are held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST and afternoon courses are held from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST, typically with a 10-minute break at the halfway point.

Activities & Events

In the morning before classes and during the one hour break between morning and afternoon courses, students can eat, do homework, and participate in a variety of organized activities, such as panels on college admissions and other topics of interest.
