Established in 2013, the UConn Academy is a partnership between the University and the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF). During the Summer Academies, the youth earn up to 3 college credits, take English and Math remedial courses, and participate in SAT prep courses. During the school year, the Academy staff monitors the youth’s academic progress and provides enrichment seminars. Foster parents are invited to participate in workshops on a variety of topics, including college planning and the financial aid process.
