More About the Summer High School Program
The Summer High School Program is about engaging with serious academic work, writing, and learning strategies for success in high school.

We know that not everyone learns in the same way. Our experience with young people who learn differently suggests that a sense of self and a good insight into one's individual learning style can make a big difference in outcomes at school.

For more than 10 years, our Summer High School Program has given participants a taste of college and an opportunity to join a learning community in which all the members are dedicated to academic achievement, mutual respect, and personal change and growth. We offer a learning environment where students—and teachers—understand and share these values.

Our experienced summer faculty will help students:

  • Begin to understand individual learning differences
  • Develop a writing process that uses proven techniques to write faster, more clearly and with fewer struggles
  • Integrate strategies and practices into content courses
  • Begin to focus on the development of better daily habits
