Georgia Teen Institute is held at Oxford College of Emory University, in Oxford, GA. Oxford is located on the original campus of Emory University and has been home to Georgia Teen Institute’s summer program since 1991. With its combination of historical buildings and state of the art technology on a small, easily walkable campus, Oxford College is uniquely suited for Georgia Teen Institute’s summer program. Though they love having us on campus each summer, Oxford College and Emory University are not affiliated in any way with Georgia Teen Institute program.

Though experiencing college life isn’t a main focus of the Georgia Teen Institute, over the years many participants have shared that their time on Oxford’s campus is what inspired them to apply to college. It is for this reason that the program has continued to be held at Oxford, allowing participants to get a taste of college life. Over the course of the four day program, participants spend time throughout Oxford’s campus. Large group sessions are held in the college auditorium, small group sessions, including workshops, are held in classrooms and participants have access to the gym, pool and other recreational facilities during free time. Further reinforcing the college experience are the meals, held in Oxford’s Dining Hall, and lodging. Participants are housed, two to a room, in two dormitories, one for males and one for females.
