About Summer College

For 60 years, Syracuse University Summer College has been giving high school students the opportunity to learn about potential careers and college majors through its renowned pre-college program. Students navigate daily life much like a college student – they live in a residence hall, have meals with friends in a dining hall, take college-level classes, and participate in social activities and events. Students return home and to their high schools with less anxiety and intimidation about going to college, and more enthusiasm and a sense of being ‘ready’ for college.

In 2019, high school students from 36 US states and 25 countries attended Syracuse University Summer College.

Summer College offers over 60 pre-college programs in eleven of Syracuse University’s schools and colleges:

  • School of Architecture
