Take Your Summer to the Next Level

Experience college life and challenge yourself academically with our two-week residential summer program for rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

As a Summer Challenge student, you choose two of eighteen seminars that will expand your academic horizons. You take part in lectures, discussions, individual and group work, and project-based assignments as well as field trips. Our small class sizes mean that you receive individual attention from our experienced college instructors.

Summer Challenge students also participate in a college admissions workshop that provides them with insight into the college application process.
