The Mythgard Institute has just opened the doors on a new college prep opportunity for high school students interested in the books of both J.R.R. Tolkien and J.K. Rowling. Mythgard Academy will offer three week online courses that will offer students not only a chance to go in-depth with their favorite works but to also experience a college lecture hall and practice their writing – with individual tutoring.
The Mythgard Academy Summer Camp takes it one step further by offering students a unique chance to study on-campus at Washington College. Participants will be asked to write about either The Fellowship of the Ring or Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – both the book and the film adaptation – using iPads and new media tools.
Learn more about both at Mythgard’s site. If you have younger fans of the Tolkien Professor in your household, we’re sure they are going to love it!
