Cornell Summer College

Dear Cornellian,

Do you know high school students who might benefit from college-level summer study at Cornell? If so, I hope you will tell them about Cornell University Summer College Programs for High School Students (www.summercollege.cornell.edu).

Cornell’s Summer College is one of the nation’s longest running and most highly regarded precollege academic programs. It brings nearly 1,000 academically talented high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors from around the world to Cornell each summer for three- and six-week programs.

Summer College students have the unparalleled opportunity to

what it’s like to live and learn at a great Ivy League university,
take university courses,
work closely with Cornell’s world-renowned faculty,
earn three to six college credits,
explore majors and career options,
get a jump on successful college applications,
make friends from around the world, and much, much more.
In addition to the gains realized by students, Summer College contributes significantly to Cornell’s recruitment efforts by introducing a geographically, ethnically, and socio-economically diverse group of talented students to Cornell. Many former Summer Collegians apply to Cornell, and each year a significant number of these students are members of the entering class.

Please share this information with individuals or organizations you think could benefit from our award-winning program. Students can connect with other Summer College fans through Facebook and can reach us directly at summer_college@cornell.edu or 607.255.6203.

On a personal note, as the new director of Summer College (I have the privilege of taking on this position following Abby Eller’s January 2013 retirement), I look forward to working with you in the years ahead and encourage you to contact me if you have any suggestions or questions about our program.

Best regards,

Jim Schechter, Ph.D., Director, and the Summer College staff
