At Georgetown, the summer experience expands far beyond the virtual classroom. Our Hoya Summer: High School Sessions are designed to reflect the college experience, and as such, we offer our students optional activities to enjoy during their free time.
Outside of class, you can choose from a wide range of daily activities to participate in where you have the opportunity to build community with other students.
Regardless of how you choose to spend your free time, we’ll always have a variety of planned activities to give you the freedom to make each day different—and tailored to fit your interests.
