College Prep Program

For students entering grades 10–12
June 30 to August 4, 2018


The College Prep Program is designed for motivated students who are seeking academic enrichment. By concentrating on one course, a student is able to fully embrace a subject and be rewarded by a sense of real accomplishment at the end of the summer. We seek to make the selected subject an integral part of each student’s life for five weeks, and our hope is that we create a desire to explore further. While the schedule requires a great deal of commitment, the experience can be very rewarding. Students are challenged academically, and they have the chance to share their interest in a course with other able students under the guidance of inspiring teachers.

Courses may be taken for academic-year credit. Many students are able to satisfy requirements for full-year courses — such as U.S. history, the sciences, or mathematics — or to accelerate their progress. Other students build a firm foundation for further study or explore a topic for which there is no course offered at their own school.
