Students are required to attend all classes on time each day. Students may choose to attend a Monday and Wednesday evening or Tuesday and Thursday evening SAT Prep Test-Taking Skills Workshop, for an additional fee of $100. The classes are limited to 35 students each and are on a first-come, first-served basis when you apply. There are six session to the workshop covering an overview of SAT and test taking skills, reading and verbal skills, mathematics, writing, final review, and exam.
There is very little unstructured time for Residential students. The purpose is two-fold; the program is scheduled to expose participants to as many aspects of UCSD and college life as possible during the three weeks and provide a well supervised, age appropriate, academic and residential program.

Students participate in a full schedule of on-campus recreational and social activities, which are supervised by the RAs and administrative staff. In addition to sports and games, weekend activities include special events such as dances, movies and a talent show. Off campus excursions are planned to Balboa Park, La Jolla Shores, Birch Aquarium, etc.. Students have "down time" in the mornings to catch up on laundry, studies, or just relax and spend time with friends. Meal schedule remains the same as weekdays.
Activities are planned during afternoon, evening activity times and on weekends. Each activity will be supervised by the RAs. The RA's goal is to offer different activities so all students can find something they enjoy doing each day. Activities include board games, arts and crafts, movies and athletics. At UCSD the "sun and surf" atmosphere creates the perfect combination for outdoor activities. Athletic facilities include a state-of-the-art campus complex with tennis courts, swimming pools, a track and field complex, playing fields and a climbing wall. Athletic facilities are shared with other programs and are supervised by our staff only during scheduled activity periods.
