Recommended Booking Dates:
We recommend arriving early enough before your chosen orientation date (June 21, 28 July 1, 2, or 5, 2015) so you will have time to settle-in, relax and get your student ID card. The first day of Summer Live classes is July 6th. The final day of class is a full day, held on July 23rd. The first day of Precollege Summer Workshops for High School students is June 29th.
