The Wildcat Summer Academy aims to deliver a college-like experience to high school students on campus. WSA aims for students to experience dynamic learning and enriching social interactions in a supportive environment. They will develop new skills, engage with vibrant IWU faculty in exciting and thought-provoking ways, and explore their interests and passions alongside like-minded students from around the country. In addition, students will have the opportunity to understand the Christian faith in the context of their specific area of interest and enjoy the opportunity for spiritual growth and development.
