Residential camps offer high school students access to outstanding academic opportunities along with college-like living and social experiences. Living on the LSU campus or at special-purpose academic facilities, students work with faculty to engage in higher-level thinking and participate in college-level research and creative endeavors. A variety of recreation and entertainment activities combine to make the camps an exciting and rewarding experience.
LSU Architecture Camp
Architects are problem solvers and artists, creators and scientists. From individual buildings and sites to large building complexes and city and regional planning, they create structures and environments that enhance the way we live and work. Becoming an architect involves a sensitivity to beauty in forms and materials and an understanding of the relationship between people and their surroundings. Get hands-on experience in solving spacial design problems and learn about what it takes to become a professional architect.

LSU College Readiness Program: A Survey of Calculus and College Mathematics
Calculus can seem overwhelming for many students and is a major hurdle, even for those who have previously excelled in math. Add in the stress of an AP class or the beginning of college, and calculus can seem nearly impossible. Whether you are a high school student or an incoming freshman, Survey of Calculus gives you the tools you need to succeed in calculus! The program is designed to teach the fundamentals of limits, derivatives, and integrals through engaging and interactive lessons. Rather than focusing on the details of complex computational problems, we provide students with a deep conceptual understanding of calculus while reinforcing foundational skills.
