At this immersive program, each high school student selects a track for the week. Students stay in our state-of-the-art residence halls, and the tracks run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday–Friday. Current College of Fine and Applied Arts faculty members, graduate students, and recent FAA alumni teach classes. Participants also join in evening activities such as bowling, watching movies on the Quad, exploring campus, swimming, scavenger hunts, trips to museums, and more. All art and design tracks include a special session at Japan House.

The FAA Summer Intensive application will be available on February 1, 2024. The deadline to ensure full consideration is April 1, 2024. We encourage you to apply early since space is limited. The application fee is $50. The program fee is $500 for commuters and $800 for residential campers.
