Summer collegiate enrichment programs can be a wonderful catalyst for personal growth, academic confidence, and clarity of intellectual direction heading into the final year(s) of high school. These programs represent meaningful opportunities to “try on” college life, to meet other driven students with similar interests, and to establish the confidence to tackle new tasks or new situations energetically.

The month of January is the best time to determine whether your son or daughter is interested in and would benefit from an enrichment opportunity on a college campus. We have a list of select summer college programs that could be a good match for students with a range of academic or personal interests and that are offered at a reasonable cost. Check the eligibility requirements carefully. Some programs are open only to rising seniors, but others are open to students at all stages of high school.

We will discuss summer programs in greater detail during our January 20, 2022, virtual College Conversation for parents.
