(June 23, 2014) -- UTSA continues this week as the San Antonio summer camp destination. Camps opening this week are the Middle School Band Camp, Performing Arts High School Workshop and a range of sports camps. More than 8,500 young students will participate in 23 camps throughout June and July.

The topics of camps and academies running throughout the summer include science, engineering, archaeology, architecture, sports, law, 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.

Each camp 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.

Summer camp highlights for this week:

  • Middle School Band Camp offers a one-week, fun-filled experience for young musicians. Students must have one year of playing experience and be an incoming seventh, eighth or ninth grader. Campers will receive musical instruction from some of the finest professional musicians in South Texas. The sessions will feature concert band, jazz band, master classes, sectionals and electives, plus recreation and a carnival.
  • The Performing Arts High School Workshop runs June 23-29. It is an intensive workshop for students interested in performing onstage and working behind the scenes. Instructors are professional directors and choreographers, or set, costume and lighting designers and technicians. Students choose the performance track or technical theater track, then receive instruction in related areas including acting, voice, dance, theater history, music theory, set building, scene painting, lighting, costuming, stage properties and more. Outstanding students may be chosen to work in UTSA Lyric Theatre productions in the fall.
  • UTSA Athletics will host baseball, basketball, soccer and softball camps to help kids develop their skills through practice and friendly competition in a fun and challenging environment.

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.
