Throughout the year, our teen programs allow high schoolers to dive deep into a creative industry with like-minded teens from around the world.

For local teens, we offer weekend and summer academies that provide focused and project-based exploration in various topics such as filmmaking, digital gaming, music technology, theatre, fashion, entrepreneurship, and much more. All of our teen offerings are created in deep collaboration with Columbia College Chicago’s academic departments, and are taught by college faculty and alumni.

In addition, Columbia College Chicago's pre-collegiate Summer at Columbia program offers college-level courses specifically tailored for high school students interested in exploring the arts, media, and communications fields.
