The Wildcat Summer Academy is a unique enrichment and inspiration opportunity to develop skills to be used for a lifetime. High school students are invited to spend one week on IWU’s campus immersed in a subject of their choice—such as art, business, music or nursing—and explore the Christian faith in the context of their specific area of interest.

The Wildcat Summer Academy has been canceled for the Summer of 2021.
