Fir Acres Writing Workshop

First offered in 1989, the Fir Acres Writers’ Workshop is a two-week residential summer program for talented high school students who are rising 10th, 11th, and 12th graders.

Participants from across the U.S. and abroad engage in creative and collaborative writing, across genres, with dynamic and published faculty.

The mission of Fir Acres Writing Workshop is to provide a high-caliber, pre-collegiate, creative educational experience to bright, inventive, and passionate high school students. The program appeals to young writers and artistic students who are drawn to the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the fun, hip mystique of Portland.

Academic English Studies

The Academic English Studies (AES) program is the year-round English language program at Lewis & Clark College of Arts and Sciences. For information visit AES.

Overseas and Off-Campus Studies

Overseas and other off-campus programs form an integral part of the total educational experience at Lewis & Clark College. Enrollment in summer Lewis & Clark programs in Ecuador, Ghana, and other locations are open to visiting students on a space-available basis.

Overseas programs immerse students in a foreign culture so that they may become informed firsthand of the history, culture, and contemporary issues of the area; understand the way people of the host country view the rest of the world; and gain insights into their own culture by comparing and contrasting American institutions and values with those of the host country. Overseas programs also provide students with academic knowledge and experience related to specific fields of study not available on campus.
