Virginia Tech Summer Academy

Welcome First Year Students!

What is Summer Academy?
Virginia Tech Summer Academy (VTSA) is a six week program (July 3 - August 13) designed to ease students' transitions from high school or from another college to Virginia Tech. By partaking in Summer Academy, students are given many opportunities to take required courses, become familiar with university expectations, make new friends, and discover our campus. VTSA combines popular courses with peer mentoring and academic networking to promote a strong foundational start at Virginia Tech. About Go! >
