NORTHFIELD, Vt. — Norwich University’s School of Architecture + Art presents Summer Design Academy 2022, a one-week, immersive program for high school students that teaches the essentials of design thinking and architectural composition to be held in person on campus July 10 to July 16.

Academy students will design a small building, using drawings and models to communicate how it would be experienced and how it could be built. Activities include seminars; sketching and drafting instruction; model building; guest lectures; workshops; and field trips. Students will gain a broader view of the field; develop skills and portfolio materials; and get advice on portfolio building and applying for college.

The academy is open to students who will be high school sophomores, juniors and seniors in fall 2022. No experience is required to attend.

Students who complete the A+A Summer Design Academy will be eligible for a $1,000 scholarship that will apply toward Norwich University tuition.

The cost, which includes meals, lodging and required materials, is $850. The application deadline is March 31; applications will be reviewed beyond that until the camp is full.

Students who complete the A+A Summer Design Academy will be eligible for a $1,000 scholarship that will apply toward Norwich University tuition.
