Connecticut College is launching a series of summer programs for high school students interested in exploring their passions, gaining new skills and getting an early feel for the college experience.
In the summer of 2023, two-week intensive, residential institutes will be offered in dance, climate action, social justice, global engagement and entrepreneurship. Each program will be taught by experienced Conn faculty and staff, and students will live together on campus. These residential institutes are designed to not only give students the opportunity to learn from experts, but also to build the skills necessary to turn that knowledge into action in their communities. Students will also sample a variety of skill-building electives such as college essay writing, interview preparation and journaling workshops, as well as recreational activities, including tennis, swimming and bowling.
“These pre-collegiate Summer@Conn programs allow high school students to experience some of the best Connecticut College has to offer. On our beautiful arboretum campus, they will hone their skills in an area they’re passionate about, meet new friends from across the country and gain a better understanding of what they hope to accomplish during their own four-year collegiate career,” said Dean of Strategic and Global Initiatives Amy Dooling.
The programs are open to rising 9th-12th graders. Each program will be offered once, either in Session I, which runs July 5-14, 2023, or Session II, which runs July 17-28, 2023.
