Vandal Summer Academy 2022

Sign up for 2022 Vandal Summer Academy

The 2022 Vandal Summer Academy is back and will take place on June 19-24!

This program is for students (aged 14-21) with disabilities who are interested in attending a two- or four-year college after high school. It is free to attend, with IDVR covering the cost.

This year the Vandal Summer Academy will be in-person. Students will spend a week on the University of Idaho campus, participating in learning sessions and activities that focus on:

  • career post-secondary counseling
  • job exploration
  • self-advocacy
  • independent living skills
  • opportunities for inclusion with student mentors.

Each day, students will attend specially designed classes. They will sleep in a dorm room and eat meals in the dining hall. The program is designed to provide an on-campus college life experience.

Other activities include:

  • campus tour
  • financial aid presentations
  • instruction and information on interview skills
  • soft-skills instruction
  • resume development
  • recreational activities
