Summer Academic Institute
Each June, the UCCS campus is bustling with Pre-Collegiate high school students participating in the Summer Academic Institute (SAI) at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. During the SAI, Pre-Collegiate students participate in dual enrollment courses, math preparation workshops, skill development workshops, and community engagement, all while getting the opportunity to connect with other students from around the Pikes Peak and Pueblo region. Many of the learning opportunities during the SAI are arranged around student pathways, including dual enrollment courses, workshops, and field trips.
Pre-Collegiate students work closely with Academic and Transition Coaches throughout their time in the Program, and this peer support is an especially key component to student success during the SAI. The Coaches are undergraduate and graduate students who support Pre-Collegiate high school students with their classroom assignments, professional development, and developing essential skills for college readiness.
