Immerse with Columbia’s world-class instructors, and a dynamic online learning platform. Get a feel for the Ivy experience and challenge yourself. Students in grades 8-12 select one curricular option for an in-depth examination of a specific subject area for 1 or 3 weeks.
Classes meet online twice each day for two-hour sessions where students refine their academic skills through a variety of activities—class discussions, debates, simulations, individual and group projects, and more. During the midday break and after class, students participate in extracurricular and co-curricular activities, including college preparedness programming, community outreach and awareness activities, and special lectures. Discover the student experience beyond class. Through this combination of academic immersion and engaging extracurricular activities, students are allowed to explore their passions and hone skills that will help them succeed in college and beyond.
The Immersion Programs are academically rigorous; courses do not carry college credit, however.
Grades are not assigned. Rather, upon successful completion of the program, students receive an official Columbia University Statement of Completion and written evaluations from their instructors.
