Exciting Summer Opportunities for Your Students at Stanford

Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies participants on campus.
As a high school college counselor, you are a critical resource to your students as they look to their future. We hope that you will look over our program information and discuss the benefits of attending a Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies summer program with your top students as they make plans for Summer 2018. Please direct students to our website to learn more about our diverse program offerings.
Learn More About Our Summer Programs

We offer programs across a wide variety of disciplines including arts, humanities, science, and math, giving highly motivated students the opportunity to investigate advanced topics not typically taught in secondary schools. Participants engage in small classes with brilliant instructors and peers who share their passions.

Deadlines for our summer programs are in February, with some early round deadlines in January. Admission is selective. Limited financial aid is available.

  • Stanford Summer Arts Institute students in grades 9–11 come together for a three-week intensive interdisciplinary arts program offering academically rigorous, hands-on courses in art, visual design, and music.
  • Stanford Summer Humanities Institute students in grades 10 and 11 explore the big questions at the heart of the humanities in seminars led by distinguished Stanford professors during this three-week residential program.
  • Stanford Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes allows students in grades 8–11 to engage in single-subject intensive study selected from a wide range of disciplines, and benefit from small class size and academically themed residences.
  • Stanford AI4ALL, formerly SAILORS, invites young women in grade 9 to apply to this three-week residential summer program. Participants learn about topics in AI, partake in ongoing research at Stanford, and receive mentorship from professors, graduate students, and industry professionals.
  • Stanford University Mathematics Camp (SUMaC) students participate in a highly-selective program centered around lectures, guided research, and group problem solving in advanced math topics. This four-week program is intended for an elite group of talented students in grades 10 and 11.
  • Stanford Pre-Collegiate University-Level Online Math and Physics offers 13 courses throughout the year, including a summer term for high school students, grades 9–12. Students earn Stanford University Continuing Studies credit.

Student Spotlight 

"My favorite has always been the first snow fall, with the beautiful light snow on the ground and on the trees. I remember waking up as a child and looking outside and thinking it was the most gorgeous thing ever. However, I never knew how beautiful it was until I saw the first snow fall at Norwich University..."

Counselor Newsletter | News that is relevant to you, for you, and for the students and parents you’re supporting across the U.S.
Hi Counselors,
We like three things about mid-fall: 

  1. Feel-good World Series stories. Like, is there anything better than rising from the soggy ashes of a hurricane to win your first title?!
  2. Rewatching the second season of Stranger Things. If you haven’t finished it yet, we’re assuming that’s because you have a job and a life. But that’s really not much of an excuse. Get going.
  3. Hearing from our future Bears. Thousands have applied ahead of our December 1priority application deadline, and our admits are making confirmation deposits, submitting UNC Scholarship applications (open now, for admitted students!), sending us their FAFSAs and applying for housing. 

In short, we hope your fall is as rad as ours.

Colgate University Office of Admission

New at Colgate

As Colgate's Early Decision deadline of November 15 approaches, I have some news and updates to share with you and your students.

Self-reported test scores
In an effort to increase access and lower application costs, students can now self-report ACT or SAT scores in either the Common Application or Coalition Application, or by sending a copy of a score report to the admission office. Students should not superscore or alter results in any way. Test scores submitted by a counselor from the applicant’s school or community based organization will also be accepted. Read more here.

Fee waiver
The application fee will be waived for any student who is applying for financial aid and meets any of the fee waiver criteria listed on the Common Application or Coalition Application without requiring an official fee waiver form. Read more here.

Online decision release
Applicants will receive an email notification when their application decision is available to view in their online portal. Students applying Early Decision I before the November 15 deadline will receive their decision notification on December 13. Decisions will be released from Colgate in the evening so we will not disrupt schools in western time zones.

Exciting things are happening beyond the admission office, too, as the Colgate campus expands with the construction of Benton Hall, the new home of Career Services, slated to open in July of 2018, and two new residence halls opening in 2019.

Reach out to us with questions! Our admission team is always ready to help.
