Summer Enrichment Programs

Summer enrichment programs vary in content, length, deadlines, cost, dates, etc. If you’re interested in a specific college, check out their website or ask an admissions officer what may be available on campus during the summer.

If you’re applying for a summer program and are in need of a transcript, see College Counseling at least one week prior to any deadlines to complete a transcript request form. If a summer program requires teacher recommendation(s), see College Counseling at least three weeks in advance of deadline for a teacher recommendation request form.

“In the summer of 2018, I participated in a two-week introduction to an architecture program called “Experiment in Architecture” at the Illinois Institute of Technology. I had the opportunity to live in the campus dorms, work with other students from around the country and abroad in the university’s studio, and go on professional firm tours in Chicago. It pushed me outside of my comfort zone, but in the best way possible. I left Chicago with my own professional architectural plans and models that I used in my college applications. It give me the certainty that this field of study was right for me.”

“The University of Melbourne’s Young Leader Program was the best experience I have ever taken part in. I met lifelong friends from all over the world who I talk to every day, even four months later. It changed my outlook on the world and helped me realize that going far away all along isn’t all that bad.”
