2020 Program Update: After careful and thoughtful discussion, and with the health and safety of our instructors, staff, and students in mind, we have made the decision to cancel all in-person pre-college programs for the 2020 summer. Applications for next summer will be available beginning October 1.
Our Middle School Summer Challenge program is designed to expand students' critical thinking skills in an exciting and innovative environment. During this two-week program, students enroll in one morning arts or humanities course and one afternoon STEM course specifically designed to build on their strong academic foundation. In addition to course work, students participate in a series of leadership and team building activities creating a well-rounded summer experience. All courses are noncredit.
Students in Middle School Summer Challenge commute to campus. We provide a full daily schedule that includes classes, lunch, and additional social and team building activities. Students are supervised at all times by our dedicated program staff.
2020 Program Dates
We offer one session of Middle School Summer Challenge from June 15-26, 2020. Please note that this commuter program meets Monday-Friday only.
