    Overview

    SLAI offers 3-week, online pre-college programs for rising juniors and seniors at a top ten liberal arts college. For the Summer of 2021 we are offering programs with the following topics: Applied Sustainability, Art, Computer Science, Global Pandemics, and Humanities. 

    The Carleton Summer Liberal Arts Institute (SLAI) is a summer learning community built for high school students to explore the liberal arts at a small, top 10, private, residential liberal arts college. Through SLAI, summer Carls will discover dedicated faculty, supportive peers, a word-class educational environment, and the flexibility to chart their own path through engaging activities and college-level academics.

    Summer opportunities range from course offerings that explore the Arts and Humanities to those investigating the Social and Natural Sciences. Each course is designed to give students exposure to three topic areas, unified under one theme, and a research experience guided by the #1 ranked faculty in the nation.

    During the two or three-week program, students will also have the opportunity to work in a collaborative research project with peers and Carleton College faculty members. At the end of their three-week program students will have the opportunity to present their research in traditional and multimedia formats. Also, students will have the opportunity to participate in a Summer Liberal Arts Community to explore a topic outside of their program and get a feel for all that a liberal arts education has to offer.
