The July 8, 2017 Phi Beta Kappa Honors Academy has been postponed. We will be in touch soon with more information.



The PBK Honors Academy is a free summer institute for promising high school students who are nominated by their high school counselors.

Held in The Honors College, the Phi Beta Kappa Honors Academy will consist of workshops, performances, and mini-courses by Phi Beta Kappa alumni and University of Houston professors.

Selections from previous academies include: Telling Your Story: Writing the Personal Statement, The Story of Science, Stories as Equipment for Living, Assessing the Presidential Candidates, and How and Why Historians Tell Stories.

Counselors, to nominate students for the PBK Honors Academy 2017, please email Elena Rios with their names, school year, mailing address, email, and phone numbers.
