alco_drugs_thumbEach summer WAU offers unique programs for rising freshmen, high school seniors, and any college student who wants to explore the nation's capital during an accelerated summer session.

    The Bridge Program is year- long academic venture aimed at giving students a head start in their college experience and providing support throughout their freshman year. It begins with a rigorous six week academic session that will run from July 15 - August 24, 2012. This program will allow students to focus on academics, while building confidence in their ability to succeed at Washington Adventist University (WAU). Students will grow through practicing appropriate learning and study strategies, and building math and language skills. The summer program will place program participants ahead of other entering first-year students, making the transition from high school to college smoother. Students will become more familiar with the WAU campus community and build connections with faculty and staff members. In addition, students will make new friends while having fun. Bridge students will receive personal attention from the program's staff and faculty. The program also includes an academic year plan where students receive a faculty mentor and continuing academic and social programming throughout the freshman year and any needed support in the sophomore year and beyond.
