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.
