July Experience is a rigorous three-week college immersion program for rising high school juniors and seniors who are highly motivated, collaborative, and self-disciplined.  Join others from across the United States and around the world and take two liberal arts courses taught by full-time Davidson faculty, live in residence halls with other students, and participate in information sessions about the college admission process. This program will provide an opportunity for you to prepare for college academically and socially, expand your worldview, get individualized attention from Davidson faculty, explore the town of Davidson and Charlotte, and experience a taste of the college student life. July Experience courses carry no secondary school or college credit, allowing students the opportunity to try courses from new academic disciplines, engage critically with a variety of material at the college level and learn holistically from their experience. The experience is in a college-level academic setting, and the critical and analytical skills students will take away is invaluable to their personal and academic growth.

Christopher Newport University's Summer Humanities Institute is a two-week residential program where students who take or plan to enroll in college-level coursework while in high school (AP, IB or DE) can learn in and outside the classroom from dynamic college faculty in the disciplines of philosophy, history, literature and cultural studies. The 2019 Summer Humanities Institute theme “Heroes and Epics” is evocative and timeless. Students will find heroes in literature, drama, history, philosophy, religion and the classics, while the epic narrative shapes their understanding of who a hero is and how their improbable achievements become possible. Through seminar-styled courses, students will explore and creatively interpret the idea of the hero, as represented in historical and contemporary western thought and artistic expression. Students will also examine various cultural understandings of the hero and the anti-hero, considering your own potential self-discovery in the process. The multidisciplinary immersion course supports the advanced courses students are taking in high school. Participants live in our residence halls, eat in the dining halls, learn in college classrooms and earn three college credits.  Check out the program website for additional information.
