About Academic Study Associates

Academic Study Associates has been running summer programs that prepare middle school and high school students for the transition to college since 1984.  Usually based on a college campus, the programs-language and cultural studies, pre-college prep and college admissions prep-are a combination of summer camp and school.

ASA hires undergrads for positions in its pre-college and cultural immersion programs, which prepare them for careers in education and counseling.  One such position is resident advisor (RA).  Each RA lives with a group of students and is responsible for student supervision and activities programming.  Senior staff, residence and recreation director positions are open to college graduates with at least two years of relevant experience.


Qualifications vary depending on the position.  RA: open to undergraduates who have completed at least three years of college, including one year in residence; international staff must be fluent in the target language.  Senior staff: open to college graduates only.
