Campus Programs
Below you will find a list of colleges that offer high school students the opportunity to experience a taste of college life.
Some of these pre-college summer programs allow high school students to earn college level academic credit while gaining an opportunity to preview college life.  The pre-college summer programs are an excellent way for students to investigate different careers, do volunteer work and explore different areas of study.  These experiences help students to learn about themselves, in addition to enhancing their college admissions applications.  Participating in one of these opportunities does not necessarily give an edge with subsequent applications to that specific college, but doing well will indicate a student's ability to do college-level work.
