Webinar Preview Events

Webinar Preview Events are for parents, educators, and students in grades 7–11 who would like to explore the program through Zoom sessions from afar. We understand that not all families can make it to our In-Person Preview Day Events so we have provided a guided set of several sessions covering different topics to discuss the program and ask questions.

Spend a Day

We are making changes this year and offering even more and better tailored Spend a Day events! Please be sure to read through all the information below to get signed up successfully for the program that we have pulled together specific to your needs.

Come spend a day with a student on campus learning what it is like to be a part of this program. Spend a Day is offered on a first come, first served basis, and is one of the most sought after experiences in which a student can participate. Each Spend a Day is scheduled near an In-Person Preview Day. For that purpose, we are tailoring the Spend a Days for students based on track and location of where the family/student lives. These events are for students to come on campus during the day without a parent, and there are two forms to be filled out for each registration. Please be sure to fill these out and get them uploaded as soon as possible to confirm your space with us!

Spend a Day options will be available for the following:

  • Tuesday of the week of In-Person Preview Days is for all participants that are local OR are interested in Traditional Science, Computer Science, Engineering, Visual Arts and Design, or Music as a track. 
  • Friday of the week of In-Person Preview Days is for all participants that are travelling from far away OR are interested in Media Arts as a track. (Note: this day of the week is reserved ONLY for students who are traveling from far away or have an interest in Media Arts. If you are not one of these two things, you wil be removed from the Friday event and placed at the back of the line for the Tuesday event of the same week.)
