(June 9, 2014) -- As San Antonio's summer camp destination, UTSA will offer 23 camps in June and July on a range of topics including science, engineering, architecture, sports, music, writing and language for children and teens. The camps help students expand their horizons through hands-on activities and open their minds to opportunities in higher education.

Some camps are free daylong programs, others last a week or two, and some go through the summer. But each offers participants the chance to have fun, make friends and learn something new. For many attendees, it will be the first experience at a top-quality institution of higher education. More than 8,500 students will participate in camps throughout the summer.

Camps and academies opening or continuing this week include the Prefreshman Engineering Program, Destination Discovery, Legacy Archaeology, Interactive Technology Experience Center, Flute, Performing Arts, Writing and Sports Camps in football, basketball, baseball, men's tennis, soccer and volleyball.

Summer camp highlights for this week

  • The Prefreshman Engineering Program (PREP) involves achieving middle and high school students with an interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and provides an academic curriculum to increase their potential for careers in these areas.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.

Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
