PacificQuest 2021

Join us for PacificQuest 2021!

Next summer, Pacific Union College is excited to offer PacificQuest 2021, an academic summer program for junior high school students who love all things STEM. Students will take classes taught by our own PUC professors, plus enjoy daily worship, sports activities, and other enriching activities. 

Human medicine is interdisciplinary and relies on the input of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). PacificQuest 2020 classes will illustrate the way various STEM fields contribute to our understanding of disease causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatments. Areas of study include anatomy, physics, disease physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, diagnostic technology, microbiology and genetics, and epidemiological modeling.

When: June 20 - June 25, 2021
Where: Pacific Union College, Angwin, California

PacificQuest is open to students who can meet the following admission criteria:

  • Completed grade 6, 7, or 8 by the June 20 start date
  • Scored in the 90th percentile or higher on the STEM portions of standardized tests
  • Highly recommended by teacher(s) and/or principal
  • Transcripts that show high achieving academic performance

Applications for PacificQuest 2021 will be available online by early February and the application deadline will be in early May. Learn more about previous years by visiting our website puc.edu/academics/pacificquest.
