The program is divided into two periods of instruction: summer and academic year. During the summer, students come to Idaho State University for six weeks to take classes in math, English, science, and other areas. Students live on campus and participate in a variety of activities as well as study hall after classes each day. The academic year follow-up offers tutoring and advising to students on a weekly basis.
