The Accelerated Business Program is a highly selective, pre-collegiate program for exceptional high school rising juniors and seniors that provides an inside track on the various fields of business with a focus on the career paths of the high demand fields. This condensed format program provides participants with a broad overview of business and rare exposure to executives from widely known and respected corporations such as Travelers, Chick-fil-A and PricewaterhouseCoopers. In addition, attendees get to sample the life of a college student by staying in UGA residence halls, eating in the university’s award-winning dining halls and attending lectures given by UGA professors. It is by no means all work and no play. The evenings are filled with exciting outings, including a night tour of Athens, a campus pool party and time to socialize with fellow participants from across Georgia and surrounding states. Program is open to current sophomores, juniors and seniors entering UGA this fall.
Program Tuition: $195. A limited number of need-based financial scholarships are available upon acceptance.

The fifteen-day Chinese program will allow high school students (rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors) who have limited, or no experience in Chinese, to attain proficiency in the target language. In addition to classroom learning, students will be able to use the target language they learn in the classroom while exploring the 13,000 acres of natural beauty surrounding the university. We also encourage novice-high to intermediate level learners to join the camp as well, as there will be plenty of interaction with Chinese native speakers in and outside of the classroom.
Most mornings students will engage in immersive language learning in the classroom. In the afternoon, students will continue to learn through project-based activities (e.g. hiking, organic gardening, biking, caving, etc.) while maintaining as much of an immersive environment as possible. The theme of “Environmental Stewardship” will provide ample opportunities for communication about food, geography, and culture; learning about the cultures and environments of China; connecting to art and history. By the end of the program, students will be able to handle many authentic tasks, including telling and asking about basic personal information, as well as commenting on the geography and environment of China and the USA.
The anticipated cost per student for Sewanee's Chinese Language Camp is $1,900. This will cover all tuition, lodging, meals, and transportation associated with the program once students arrive on campus. Limited scholarships are available. Please inquire for more information about financial aid.
The exact dates of the Chinese Language Camp are from June 17 to July 1, 2022. Students will live in a residence hall on campus for the entire time, with the possibility of an overnight camping trip.
Any current rising sophomore, junior, and seniors in high school may apply. A strong interest in learning the Chinese language is highly encouraged.
