Summer Programs for High School Students
Using your summers productively is valuable in learning more about yourself, exploring potential areas of interest, and gaining life skills. One way to spend time over the summer is to enroll in a summer program. Summer programs offered by universities give students the opportunity to live on a college campus and learn more about what fit means to them.
These programs can also allow students to earn college credits for the classes they take – typically classes that aren’t offered in high school. While attending a summer program is not the only valuable way to spend your time over break, we highlight a few programs here based on interests. Click on any program to learn more. Questions? Please contact Mr. Blackard if you would like assistance finding or applying for a summer program.
