Summer Academy solicits nominations from high school principals and counselors across the United Arab Emirates on behalf of their students. School representatives are invited to identify and nominate their most outstanding students who are completing Year 10.* Interested school representatives and students should email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
* For those students who will be completing a 13th year (for example in British Schools), they are only eligible to be nominated in their 11th year.
School representatives (typically principals and counselors) will receive details on the application process and nomination link by mid-December. Students interested in being nominated are encouraged to work with their school representative to learn more. Once nominated, students can submit their application through the Summer Academy application system by the February deadline.
Complete applications are reviewed by the program administration and finalists are selected to participate in the Summer Academy's Selection Days, which include:
Students and their schools will be notified of their admissions decision in May-June. Once students are accepted and have agreed to participate, they, along with their parents/guardians, participate in a mandatory orientation meeting and are sent a packet of required enrollment forms to fill out.
