About Our Summer School

Untitled Document

For a growing number of middle- and high-school students, the quest for knowledge doesn't end with the final school bell of the year. Summer provides the perfect opportunity to gain credits and prepare for college.

University of Miami’s Global Academy enables students the opportunity to design a custom-tailored summer school program that fits their own schedule. Programs include 3- and 6-week summer courses for credit advancement and credit recovery. UMGA students receive private school quality support to maximize their opportunity to earn and recover credits. Upon course completion, each student will receive a copy of their transcripts to submit back to their school for credit.
