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 2016. 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.

Graduating seniors in 2016 can apply for the OC Honors Academy European Studies Abroad Program next summer. Click here for more information.
