The Summer College for High School Student program provides students with authentic undergraduate academic experiences as we reimagine what "residence life" looks like online.

For more of what to expect, visit our Participant FAQ page. Additional policies are outlined below.

Cocurricular and Recreational Activities

The director, residential coordinator, and college-age resident advisers work with students to create a variety of remote co-curricular and recreational activities. 

Activities are scheduled every day of the week.

College staff will also present workshops on topics such as choosing a career, selecting a college, and strategies for being accepted. Students may also schedule an admission interview for information and practice.
