Summer Programs

Benefits of attending a summer program

Many students choose to take part in special summer programs to:

  • Explore their interests
  • Develop new skills
  • Get hands-on experience that a classroom doesn't offer
  • Meet other students with similar interests
  • Get a taste of college life
  • Try out college classes
  • Earn college credit, if available

Taking part in a summer program is also a plus on college applications; it shows colleges that you’re committed to learning.

Where and What

Summer learning programs are available in just about every area of study, from the arts and sciences to languages and athletics. Many are offered on college campuses.

You can find residential programs, where you live in a dorm with other students. There are also local programs- if you don’t want to leave home, you can still take part in a summer program!

How Much

Summer programs have a wide range of costs. Some are free, some are thousands of dollar, but many offer scholarships or financial aid.

List of Summer Programs

Here is a working list of programs- this is not a comprehensive list but includes programs that are shared with the counselors. This list will be updated as new programs are available- check back often!
