The Virginia Tech Summer Academy (VTSA) is designed to ease your transition from high school to college by coupling required course work with opportunities, to become familiar with university expectations, to make new friends, and to find your way around campus and the Blacksburg community.
Research experts suggest that students who enroll in programs like the VTSA have higher levels of satisfaction in personal adjustment, satisfaction with institutional choice, and a more enriching academic experience than non-participants. Our VTSA alumni have demonstrated exceptional academic success with over 70% earning a grade point average of 3.0 or higher.
VTSA combines popular courses, along with peer mentoring and academic networking, to promote a strong foundation to start your academic life at Virginia Tech. The VTSA takes place during Virginia Tech's second summer session (July 5 – August 15) and is only available to first year students (freshmen and transfers).
