The Liberal Arts Academy

The Liberal Arts Institute is a comprehensive program consisting of  five (5) credit-bearing cohort courses and co-curricular, afternoon workshops focused on the completion of a culminating project.  The Institute gives students a firsthand glimpse of what is needed to succeed in a college course and teach students how to think independently as well as critically while promoting their intellectual and personal growth. Each course will award three college credits. Attendance at the afternoon workshop will be mandatory, in order to receive credit for the morning course. All accepted students will be required to attend a mandatory orientation and maintain satisfactory attendance and academic performance.
