SEGUIN -- Are you interested in improving your writing skills or taking the anxiety out of public speaking? Would you like to delve into the psychology and design of your favorite games like Angry Birds or Call of Duty? All of these experiences and more will be available to high school students who attend Texas Lutheran University’s (TLU) Lone Star Scholars Academy (LSSA) July 8-20.

The Lone Star Scholars Academy is a two-week residential program that offers university-level courses for transferable college credit to academically gifted high school students. Each LSSA student participates in two courses taught by select TLU faculty. Small classes, field trips, evening activities, and a group service project offer high school students an opportunity to experience college life firsthand.

The eleven courses offered this summer include classes in the areas of communication studies, English, psychology, sociology, leadership, and advertising.

Students who have completed one year of high school and have not yet graduated, have successfully taken the PSAT, and/or rank in the top half of the class are eligible to apply.

The two-week academy is $1,825 and includes tuition, room, board, books, and all associated activity fees and material costs. Need-based financial aid up to $900 is available.

An online application is available at or contact TLU Admissions at 1-800-771-8521 for more information.
