• Wonderworks, a non-profit organization, is presenting its eighteenth annual summer pre-college enrichment programs for academically promising and talented Houston-area high school students:

     

    Wonderworks' programs are challenging but enjoyable and emulate college-level courses and use college-level materials.  However, they are ungraded and carry no credit, but are designed to broaden cultural horizons and develop critical reading and thinking skills.  All are taught by college- or college-level instructors using college modes of presentation. Most programs are reading intensive and require significant out-of-class reading each night and on weekends.

     

    FROM THE GROUND UP:  architectural history/appreciation

     

    STORY LINES: fiction and narrative films with creative writing

     

    STRANGER THAN FICTION: nonfiction/journalism and narrative films/documentaries with nonfiction writing

     

    MOVING PICTURES: film literature/appreciation with screenwriting

     

    CLOSER LOOKS: art history/appreciation

     

    These programs run from 21 June - 16 July, M - F, except 5 July, online via Zoom and Microsoft Teams. Tuition is free.

     

    Rising 12th-grade students who complete any of these programs successfully may also participate in:

    ADMIT ONE: college essay/counseling workshop, 19 - 23 July, online via Zoom and Microsoft Teams. Tuition is free.
