2020 SUMMER PROGRAM At-a-Distance

For the safety of all participants and staff, we have decided to cancel our regularly scheduled residential summer program, but we will be offering a new Summer Program At-a-Distance! We are hard at work putting together a calendar of fun and engaging events for our virtual programming. A detailed calendar will be published in the coming weeks, but for now, here is a small taste of what we’ll be offering:

  • Weekly college prep workshops
  • Weekly virtual social gatherings
  • Weekly "club nights" (just like during in-person summer program, but online!)
  • Innovative, engaging, and exciting virtual courses that you can participate in on your own schedule
  • Academic project kits and fun care packages mailed directly to your home
  • Virtual field trips - college tours, career fairs, museum explorations, and more!
  • Exclusive access to online resources designed to keep your brain sharp and get you ready for college
  • A jump start on college application and scholarship essay writing
  • Individual mentoring and advising
  • A Final Awards Ceremony!

Those who participate will earn a stipend of up to $300/month AND will be eligible to join us on our big Finally Free from Quarantine Trip (details TBD)!

We are keeping our original summer program dates (Monday, June 22 – Friday, July 31).

We are also recruiting new students that will be eligible to participate beginning this summer! Click here to see if you apply.
