The Academies @HOME [Coordinated By Eunice (Yewon) L.]
The Fall Business Academy @Home is a concentrated 4-day curriculum designed to teach you the fundamentals of launching your business: idea generation, market research, business plans and pitches, competitive analysis, and generating funding. Each day begins with an in-depth analysis of one aspect of this journey, culminating in the unique opportunity for students to present their own business. Beyond business components, this program also provides insight into interview strategies and resume building skills to help students land any coveted internship or job. Students will gain a comprehensive education of business fundamentals and valuable hands-on experience so they will be ready to enter and succeed in the business world.
The Pre-Law Academy @Home is a unique pre-professional course oriented towards introducing the field of law to high school students. The course covers due process of law, landmark court cases in American legal history, and much more! In particular, we are excited to partner with the Harvard Office of Career Services to orient students towards the LSAT, the difficult-to-navigate requirements of the application to Law School, and the many careers in the world of law. This program seeks to give students not only the tools of a pre-law student, but also an awareness of history and the current events that contextualize law in society today.
The Fall Pre-Med Level 1 Academy @Home Level I covers various topics within the Pre-Medical field, including content modules on genetic inheritance, hormones, immunology and organic chemistry. The program also explores case studies on various diseases, poses medical ethics questions, and offers an opportunity to dissect scientific papers. Furthermore, this academy will prepare you for a career in medicine by providing an overview of the MCAT process, giving you a taste of the journey you will embark on in the near future.
The Fall Coding Level 1 Academy @Home is a comprehensive curriculum designed to teach high school students the fundamentals of coding. The program will give students the knowledge, guidance, and resources they need to understand the basic functions of code. Projects from the weekends will include various programming challenges that will get students acquainted with Python, setting them up with the tools to tackle our Fall Coding Academy’s Level II program, which includes frameworks like HTML, React.JS, and will be oriented towards web programming and building your very own website!
The Fall Pre-Med Level II Academy @Home relies on prior knowledge from the Level I program (or a curricular equivalent) to give students the tools to fill the shoes of an emergency room doctor or a triage nurse in patient care. Students will learn about human physiology, the pathologies that affect it, and the tools needed to diagnose and treat those pathologies in a curriculum curated by physicians from Massachusetts General Hospital and professors of medicine from Harvard Medical School.
The programs will run from 7pm-11pm KST / 5am-9am ET each day listed.
