Registration Now Open for College of the Canyons Summer Institute

Registration is now open for the popular career exploration themed College of the Canyons Summer Institute, with weekly sessions running July 11 to 14 and July 18 to 22. The institute is open to students entering the seventh, eighth and ninth grades. 

The goal of the Summer Institute is to provide hands-on career exploration and learning opportunities in a variety of subjects such as: robotics, special effects and movie making, allied health, video game design, sports medicine, photography, architecture and welding.

All Summer Institute instructors are College of the Canyons professors, student teachers or industry professionals who have tailored their curriculum with junior high and high school students in mind. 

Each track allows students to discover a multitude of career possibilities through a unique blend of innovative lesson plans and fun, hands-on activities.

“The COC Summer Institute is much more than your typical summer camp,” said Mark Carr, Summer Institute coordinator. “It’s an opportunity for your child to discover a potential career path, and have some fun at the same time. You don’t want to let your teenager miss out on this amazing experience.”
