Summer Academic Institutes for Young Women

Saint Mary’s College is offering two in-person, residential academic programs in July 2022. Our Summer Academic Institutes are designed for motivated high-school girls who are curious and care about the world around them.

While here, you will stay in our residence halls, eat in the dining hall, and meet students from a variety of backgrounds. You’ll also learn alongside college professors and Saint Mary’s student mentors. Our Summer Academic Institutes allow you to learn more about yourself, build relationships, and deepen your commitment to justice. 

We invite you to apply now, and be part of the next generation of thinkers and doers.

Each Summer Academic Institute is limited to 30 participants. Applications will be accepted until spaces are filled. Participation is open to high school girls entering grades 10 – 12 in the fall of 2022. Students who are accepted into these competitive programs may apply for full or half scholarships.

The Dialogue and Democracy Academic Institute runs concurrently with the first week of the Embody Summer Theology Institute. It is possible to apply and be accepted for both programs and remain on campus for two weeks.
