Participants live in a residence hall on a college campus. During this six-week experience students receive instruction in basic academic classes such as:
- English (Composition and Literature)
- Mathematics (Algebra I &II, Geometry, Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus)
- Science (Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics)
