Parents and students enjoy hearing that there are no third-party vendors involved, and they can experience an authentic pre-college experience at a college on their list.

Our program helps students learn practical skills over each two-week session and have a chance to experience how newsrooms operate in-person or virtually.

For students living on-campus, they have the opportunity to:

  • Meet with Boston University's representative to discuss the college admissions process
  • Explore what it's like living in a residence hall and studying in a university environment

The Experiences in Architecture (EiA) program at the Catholic University of America (CUA) is an intense, two-week, pre-college workshop for students interested in architecture or other design-related fields. Students are exposed to both the academic and professional sides of the architectural arena, as the city of Washington, D.C. becomes their virtual classroom. 


EiA will better prepare students for the rigors of architecture school, giving them a head start, as well as acquainting them with campus life at the university level. Students who have participated in EiA’s summer workshop, or a similar pre-college program, are better prepared for success at the university level.

This year EiA will continue with its successful hybrid experience! Opening the program to students that can't make it in person allowed for a very diverse experience for all. Students from across the world, including India and Brazil, were able to join and connect with in-person students from across the U.S. We have phenomenal instructors that are experienced in creating a successful hybrid studio environment with small groups and individualized focus. Students that want to be in-person will have the option to commute or to live on campus. Either way, they will have their own desks and work in studio. As students in the program, whether you’re online or in-person, you will have access to all of our best lecturers and get to experience (virtual) tours of museums, firms, and the CUA campus. Students will receive their own set of tools and we look forward to working through this tool kit to ensure students gain the foundational knowledge they need for drawing, sketching, and model making.

Students will leave this workshop with an array of technical skills, a higher level of confidence in giving presentations, a greater understanding of how the design profession works, and connections with professors and practitioners. This is truly a one-of-a-kind experience that we would love to share with you.



DATES June 27th - July 8th, 2022

Optional Week 3: focus on digital tools, July 11th-15th, 2022

TUITION $1,350 (includes toolkit of supplies)
