Pre-College Summer Programs: Summer 2021

Pre-College Summer Programs

Champlain College offers a variety of pre-college summer programs for middle and high school students looking to gain hands-on experience in a variety of exciting and in-demand fields.

Taught by Champlain College's industry-expert faculty and hosted on our beautiful campus in Burlington, Vermont, Champlain's pre-college summer programs offer motivated high school students the opportunity to immerse themselves in an subject area they're passionate about, gain new skills, get a taste of college-level coursework, and add strength to their college applications - all while having fun with like-minded peers. Some programs also allow you to earn transferable college credits.


We look forward to the return of all residential summer pre-college programs in 2022!
