Short Summer Courses
Summer School Courses

Akademeia High School organises Summer School courses open to all school students to participate in. 

These courses are devised, developed and delivered by our highly experienced teaching staff and cover a wide range of disciplines and faculties across the school. Lessons are complemented by a variety of co-curricular options, including sports and cultural excursions away from the school. In common with our year-round operations, the summer programmes are informed by our teaching philosophy and overriding mission to help each student reach their full potential and achieve academic excellence.

We welcome students from all over Poland and beyond as we offer boarding for students participating in the English for Academic Proposes and Social Sciences Summer School courses.

“The Summer School is an intellectually stimulating and fun taste of academic life at Akademeia. It is ideal for students who are keen to experience what it’s like to study here for the first time, as well as for our current students looking to engage in inspiring materials away from the core syllabus.”
