After carefully reviewing the available information relating to the impact of the coronavirus and COVID-19, we have decided to cancel the ACORN program for the 2020 summer season. The health and safety of our students and faculty are extremely important in making these decisions.  While we are saddened to have to make this decision, we look forward to being back next summer!


Once you’re here, the opportunities only get better:

  • Science-focused four-week Spring Term courses provide opportunities for students to study in the lab or out in the field, working side-by-side with a faculty member.
  • Students can apply for a summer research opportunity at Alma under the exclusive direction of a faculty member.
