Applications for 2017 are now open!!

2017 HSA features classes in Engineering, Bible, Humanities, and Sciences.

The Oklahoma Christian University Honors Summer Academy is an annual, one-week college experience hosted by OC's Honors Program to encourage the pursuit of excellence by gifted and talented students entering their sophomore through senior years of high school in fall 2017. It is held on the OC campus.   

The program accepts high school students who already have demonstrated excellence in academics seeking to develop those skills for exceptional university performance. By the end of the program, students will have developed the confidence to continue their academic trajectory of excellence, linked academics to their faith, and demonstrated the impact of experiential learning in academic and in service activity.

We believe confidence in these core skills will contribute to increased resilience and persistence necessary to achieve exceptional performance following high school graduation.

Program Description

Each participant may earn two hours of transferable university credit by selecting two courses from the appropriate grade level. Credits are based on face-to-face instruction time as well as Blackboard/internet activity before the time in residence at OC. HSA faculty are OC Master Teachers.

Requirements

All high school students entering their sophomore, junior, or senior year in fall 2017 with at least a 21 ACT/ 980 SAT/98 PSAT or by recommendation may apply to the Academy. The application with your letter of recommendation from a teacher, guidance counselor or church leader and $100 deposit (refund if you are not accepted) will serve to differentiate you from the other candidates, helping us to select the final participants.  

Cost

The cost for 2017 is $600. Total value is over $1,400, but OC provides tuition remission scholarships valued at over $800 to bring the cost to $600. A $100 deposit is required when you apply with complete payment due by April 30th. Get someone else to sign up for a one time $50.00 friend discount.
