About Northeastern University

We have chosen Northeastern University to host our intensive Boston summer teen camps because of its standing as a premier Research University, and its consistently high academic rankings. With 65 undergraduate and 125 graduate programs, academics at Northeastern are varied and intricately intertwined with experiential learning, which is the integration of study with professional work. Over the past ten years, 90% of graduates from Northeastern were either employed full-time or enrolled in grad school within six months of graduation. With more than 300 clubs and organizations, a thriving athletic culture, a beautifully urban campus, and the unique opportunities their professional co-ops and research departments provide, Northeastern is a well-rounded and excellent addition to our iD Academy lineup.

The iD Game Design & Development Academy is a one-of-a-kind offering for students seeking to get better at the art and science of game development. The program is intended for high-school-aged students ages 13-18. As part of the full university experience, students will eat in the campus dining halls and sleep in real dorms. All meals are included.

General Location: Boston-Logan International Airport is located thirteen minutes away, making it an excellent option for our Boston summer computer camps.
