Summer is a wonderful time for high school students to explore colleges as well as take advantage of free time to continue their learning outside of the classroom. Many schools offer special programs for high school students during the summer months. Information and applications for summer 2017 programs will generally begin opening in early 2017. Browse these sites to get ideas, join a mailing list if one is available, and then set yourself a reminder to check back when registrations open.
