The ACCI Summer Academy Experience

The Atlanta for Creative Inquiry, Inc. Summer Academy is a week-long summer experience designed to immerse rising 8th -12th grade students into the creative design process used by architects, engineers, and construction professionals. Under the guidance of professors of architecture, practicing architects, and architectural students, high school students will conceive, develop and present architectural solutions to a real world design problem The ACCI Academy experience is perfect for students interested in careers related to the built environment such as architecture, engineering, or construction.

Architects, Engineers, Educators and Site Visits will facilitate discussion and learning opportunities for the students as we develop concepts, designs, and final presentations (drawings I models) of proposed solutions for real-world design problems.

Due to the pandemic and campus closures, the Atlanta Center for Creative Inquiry is planning to offer our architecture academy on a virtual platform for 2020. We hope to have details on format and registration out later this summer so check back with us. Please follow all CDC and local municipality guidelines and stay safe. See you soon!
