    The 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 program gives students the opportunity to earn college credit and present their independent work, all under the guidance of #1 ranked faculty in the nation.

    During the three-week program, students will learn about college life while having the opportunity to work on collaborative projects with peers and Carleton College faculty members. At the end of their three-week program, students will have the opportunity to present their work in traditional and multimedia formats.

    • Applied Sustainability
    • Building Connections in STEM
    • Computer Science: Perceiving and Responding
