Hillsborough Scholars Summer Academy

The Hillsborough Scholars Summer Academy is a week-long academic camp for exceptionally talented, rising eighth-grade students in the Hillsborough County public schools. Classes are taught collaboratively by Hillsborough County instructors and University of Tampa professors on the picturesque campus of The University of Tampa.

Creative, fun and challenging courses that revolve around current topics of interest are offered each summer.

Students who are eligible to take the SAT or ACT as part of the Duke Talent Identification Program or Hillsborough Talent Identification program may attend. Application can be made by completing an online registration form. For more information, program fees and to register a student, parents are invited to visit this Web page or contact the student’s guidance counselor.

There are two sessions from which to choose:

  • Session 2: June 23-27, 2014 

Available seats fill up fast, so parents are always encouraged to watch for the opening of registration and register early to ensure a place for their young scholar in the Hillsborough Scholars Summer Academy at The University of Tampa.
