Summer@Conn is all about the love of learning

Summer@Conn pre-college courses help you prepare for your future college experience. 

All pre-college courses are taught by Connecticut College’s exceptional faculty and staff. Because courses are not-for-credit and you are not graded or evaluated, the pre-college experience is all about learning. 

Your high school classes have inspired you to explore new ideas and interests. Whether you already have a strong idea of what you want to study in college or are undecided, Summer@Conn can help you find your path.

Summer@Conn pre-college programs give you the opportunity to interact with future friends from across the country and the world, gaining new perspectives. You get to learn not only from faculty and staff who bring years of expertise, but also with classmates who share your interests.
