Improve Academic Achievement and College Readiness
June 22 - July 31, 2015
Each summer, the Accelerated Summer Academic Program (ASAP) at the University of San Diego (USD) offers high school students a select number of honors and advanced placement (AP) courses to prepare them adequately for college.
Taking classes on USD's campus provides high school students with the opportunity to have a university-level learning experience. Since one of the greatest challenges for college students is the transition from the high school to the college learning environment, USD’s goal with the Accelerated Summer Academic Program is to help students prepare for and succeed in this transition.
