The Summer Symposium


The Academy's Summer Symposium provides students the opportunity to hear internationally-known human rights experts, take part in hands-on activities and field trips, and learn the skills they need to make an impact on the community, nation, and world.

​Open to any incoming 9th grader through graduating senior, the program is held for five days in mid-July. Created in 2008 by award-winning, nationally-recognized educators and co-sponsored by Erie 1 BOCES, the Symposium provides its participants with the inspiration and tools to become the leaders that they were born to be.
