Academia Latina is a one-week summer academic residential program for Latino youth in southern Oregon completing grades 7 through 9. The program immerses Latino students in a university setting, exposing them to the learning and career possibilities of college. This program provides an integrated experience with classes, field trips, cultural experiences and recreational activities.
ACADEMIA LATINA was created when Southern Oregon University teamed up with the Jackson Educational Service District and Rogue Community College and held a Latino Planning Symposium in 1999 to develop an annual residential camp for Latino youth.
ACADEMIA LATINA LEADERSHIP

They will interact with other Latino students from throughout southern Oregon.
