Summer Programs for High School Students

Take a Step Toward Your Future

group of Health Sciences Academy students

2017 Health Sciences Academy

Huntingdon College believes strongly in the value of students’ early exposure to career possibilities. Gaining observation and hands-on experience in a career field informs your career choices in many important ways. For these reasons, Huntingdon has created the following programs for high school students:

The Huntingdon Leadership Academy

This annual program, begun in 2015, is open to high school sophomores and juniors who are members of United Methodist churches and who are discerning calls to ministry. HLA is a five-day experience.

The Huntingdon Economic and Community Development Scholars Program

Chambers of Commerce across Alabama may nominate up to four students to attend this 3-day/2-night summer program. Students learn about careers in economic and community development and about the importance of this work to better our communities.

The Huntingdon Health Sciences Academy

Introduced in 2017, this special 3-day/2-night program serves rising River Region high school seniors who are interested in careers in the health sciences. Attendees must have achieved minimum cumulative GPAs of at least 3.4.

What to Bring

If you are accepted to attend one of these summer programs, you will stay overnight in a Huntingdon residence hall. You will need to bring bedding for an extra-long twin mattress (or a sleeping bag), toiletries, clothing for your stay, a flashlight, identification, and other items specific to your seminar. You may bring snacks in enclosed containers.
