College Summer Programs List 2016 

Search below to see a list of member institutions summer program offerings for high school students !

More and more colleges and universities are offering short term on-campus programs that offer a taste of what life would be like at that institution.  Many offer a mixture of academic and social content, courses taught by tenured professors, and some even provide credit.  All provide a fantastic way to discover college life and an enriching summer experience. 

Selecting a summer program can be as challenging as choosing which college to apply for – thankfully its hard to make a bad choice.  Here are some factors to consider while working with your students and their parents:

-       Dream College : This may be the first chance for your student to experience the college they already have at the top of their list.  However, as a grade 10 or 11 student, there is still time to explore.  If a student’s heart has always been set on College X , and will apply there no matter what - - then perhaps a summer program at College Y is the perfect opportunity to discover the next best thing. 

-       Location : Use the summer program as a chance to travel and explore different parts of the world.  For US students set on returning America, universities in the UK and Canada offer summer programs and provide a reason to experience a different country. Or look at different parts of the United States that go beyond the east and west coast.

-       Theme : Some college programs offer focused themes for their summer programs.  Perhaps your students want to develop their leadership or build a talent in the fine arts.  Several institutions offer summer programs streamed to the Sciences or Engineering.  Or look at a program that focuses on a current hot topic , like sustainability or economics. 

PLUS : Be sure to read more about selecting the right summer program in the International ACAC article: "HOW TO IDENTIFY QUALITY SUMMER PROGRAMS"

The following is a selection of summer programs offered at universities around the world from our members.  Note – none of these programs have been endorsed by International ACAC. This is provided only as a resource guide for our members. Check the individual program websites for details , particularly concerning accommodations and guardianship.
