Pre-College Summer Programs
Our pre-college programs are designed for high school students who will be rising juniors and seniors during the program. If you are already a college student interested in taking classes at Dickinson College during the summer, please visit the summer school link: www.dickinson.edu/summer/summerschool.html

Our pre-college summer programs provide an exciting way to make your transition to college easier. You'll get the real scoop, taking classes with college students, learning, socializing, and being part of the college experience. You'll enhance your applications to competitive colleges by demonstrating that you are a serious student who knows what it takes to succeed in college.

You can immerse yourself in topics that you may only briefly encounter in high school-explore new things or check out that career you always thought was right for you. Our pre-college courses, field trips, and activities will give you a significant exposure to your area of interest and to college life. All of this happens in the care of the most dedicated faculty and staff you'll encounter anywhere. You'll have the opportunity to earn academic credit that will transfer to most colleges.

Thank you for considering Dickinson College. We look forward to working with you as you plan your summer. If you have any questions, please contact us or program alumni and parents.

There are several options available to Pre-College students ranging from a Pre-Law track to Pre-Business. We also have a Spanish Summer Immersion program.

Please feel free to browse through the program descriptions.
