Early College Summer Program
Thank you to all who participated in our first year of the Early College Summer program! It was a great success. We are now ready to accept applications for our second year open to metro Atlanta students.
In four weeks, our students gain what they need to be successful upon starting college. They’ll learn academic, cultural and social skills through course work and field trips.
Early College Summer program students take college-level math, English and science classes. They’ll learn such things as:
- study skills
- financial literacy
- becoming a successful college student
- coding, art and film
Our on-campus summer program gives them the experience of what it’s like to be at the university. They’ll learn to navigate the campus, experience downtown and interact with other college students.
They’ll also get to go on field trips such as:
- The Center for Civil and Human Rights
- Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery, Alabama
- Junior Achievement at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta
- and… a surprise, out-of-town, fun-filled trip
College-bound high school students will get a huge head start from this extraordinary experience.
The Early College Summer program runs from June 4-29, 2018. Please view the information below for program details and how to register.
