About the Academy

The LEAD Summer Academy is a program designed for students admitted to UTSA on conditional admission. Conditional admission means that guaranteed admission requirements, which take into consideration high school class rank and SAT and/or ACT scores, were not met. Once a student accepts to be in the LEAD Summer Academy, they will be admitted as a UTSA student.

Students who choose to participate will receive guidance and support their first year in college and will start by taking courses in the summer with other LEAD students. Aside from taking courses, students will also have opportunities to attend academic and social activities that will positively impact a student's first-year in college.
