Leaders Exploring Academic Possibilities (LEAP) is a summer program for rising high school freshmen hosted by UA Early College at The University of Alabama. Students who meet the criteria must submit an application and be extended an invitation to participate in a camp session.
In order to accommodate the needs of students and families, the five-day LEAP camp will be held during two separate weeks. Students can choose to participate in the June camp OR the July camp. Students will choose one camp in which to participate.
The LEAP program will be held on the following dates:
In order to be considered for the LEAP (Leaders Exploring Academic Possibilities) program, students must meet the following requirements:
The LEAP application opened November 6, 2017 and closed December 8, 2017. Students will be notified in February 2018 of their acceptance into the program.
All completed LEAP application packets (application and references) will be reviewed by the UA Early College LEAP Committee once the application closes. Due to each camp being limited to 55 participants, not all applicants will be extended an invitation to participate in a camp session.
Once final selections are made, invitations will be extended. Students must accept their invitation to participate, as well as attend a required orientation session with their parent/guardian.
No money is due until a student has been accepted into LEAP. Specific details and payment deadlines will be communicated to those students who accept their invitation to participate.
