Course Overview

Are you considering a career in architecture or design? The Summer Springboard architecture course for high school students introduces architectural ideas, design principles, and methods of exploring problems of the built environment in a collaborative studio setting.

Excursions may include a tour of Healy Hall. Healy Hall, Georgetown’s flagship building, was also built between 1877 and 1879, though it is in the medieval Flemish Romanesque style rather than the Victorian. Its architects Paul Pelz and John Smithmeyer also designed the Library of Congress. Healy Hall was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1987.
