Boyce Academy

A one week college experience for high school students

July 17-22, 2022

Experience college life

Be introduced to life on a Christian college campus. Living in dorms, studying on a beautiful campus, and enjoying college activities will prepare students to transition to full-time college life after high school.

Earn college course credit

At the Boyce Academy, high school students will be introduced to college-level work for which they may earn both high school and two hours of college credit.

Study with world-class scholars

The Boyce College faculty represent some of the most accomplished and respected scholars in Christian higher education. At the Boyce Academy, students will train under world-class scholars.

Receive a college scholarship

Students who successfully complete the Boyce Academy will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship upon full-time residential enrollment at Boyce College in the fall of their freshman year. Students can receive an additional scholarship for each year that they attend Boyce Academy.

Courses

Each year, Boyce Academy features modules that focus on a central theme. This year, students will explore the topic of “Goodness” from the perspectives of philosophy, business, literature, and the Bible—all taught by members of the Boyce College faculty.

Upon completing Boyce Academy, students will be awarded college credit for PH119 Goodness in the Western Tradition (3 hours). In this course, students will examine the problem of goodness. All people pursue goods as a means of achieving happiness, but why do we do so and how do we choose among the many options available to us? What goods, if any, will lead to lasting happiness? What does it mean to live a good life? Students will address these questions and others by considering the ways they have been answered by exemplars of the Western tradition in the areas of philosophy, theology, literature, politics, and economics. Furthermore, students will consider the ways these answers can be practically applied to their lives and vocations.
