iD Tech Academies offer intensive, assignment-driven programming workshops in various course topics including machine learning, virtual reality, game development, robotics, and more. Programs are designed to be a rigorous, pre-college experience that provides industry insights for teens interested in pursuing STEM fields in college or as a career.
Academy programs run in two-week sessions. Weekend stays are an optional add-on at select locations. While they’re fully supervised by our staff, weekend stays are filled with activities designed for fun (rather than our usual instruction).
Because this is a teen-only program, students are provided as much autonomy as possible to shape their own weeks with what they want to learn and how to spend their free time. Along with the additional freedom academies allow, teens will get to stay in the dorms on campus to get an even better feel for college life (with boys and girls staying in separate areas of the dorms).
Along with an iD Tech diploma, teens leave their academy with a portfolio tailored to their course topic—a valuable addition to resumes and portfolios for college applications, internships, and jobs.
