One of the nation's longest running and most highly regarded precollege academic programs, Cornell University Summer College brings more than 1,500 motivated high school students from around the world to Cornell each summer. Here they experience college life, take Cornell courses, earn three to six college credits, explore careers and academic majors, and prep for college applications.

This summer, we will offer programs between June 23 and August 7 in a wide variety of subjects, ranging from architecture, business, hospitality, and engineering to international relations, science, social change, and veterinary medicine—and many more.
In addition to enhancing students' personal and academic growth, Summer College introduces a geographically, ethnically, and socio-economically diverse group of motivated students to Cornell. Many former Summer Collegians apply to Cornell, and each year a significant number of these students join the entering class.
