Through our High School Summer Scholars Program, students have the opportunity to enroll in two courses for credit and study alongside undergraduates. Students select from a broad range of stimulating introductory courses in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and mathematics. This program is ideal for students who want to earn college credit, challenge themselves academically and explore courses in a specific major or subject.
In addition to course work, High School Summer Scholars participate in specialized college readiness, community building, and academic support activities.
For the 2021 summer, the High School Summer Scholars Program will be offered remotely.
The High School Summer Scholars Program is a five-week program offered from July 19-August 19, 2021. Orientation for students will open June 7.
