Introduce Talented High School Students to Cornell's Summer College

This would be a great way for those of you who aspire to get a sample of how top US universities' education is and also strengthen your chances of getting in.


Dear Cornellian,

Do you know high school students who might benefit from college-level summer study at Cornell? If so, I hope you will tell them about Cornell University Summer College Programs for High School Students (

Cornell's Summer College, now in its forty-ninth year, is one of the
nation's longest running and most highly regarded pre-college academic
programs. It brings more than 800 academically talented high school
sophomores, juniors, and seniors from around the world to Cornell each
summer for three- and six-week programs.

Summer College students have the unparalleled opportunity to:

  • experience what it's like to live and learn at a great Ivy League university,
  • take real university courses,
  • work closely with Cornell's world-renowned faculty,
  • earn three to six college credits,
  • explore majors and career options,
  • get a jump on successful college applications,
  • make friends from around the world--and much, much more.

As a Cornell alum, you also might be interested to know that in
addition to the gains realized by students, Summer College contributes
significantly to Cornell's recruitment efforts by introducing a
geographically, ethnically, and socio-economically diverse group of
talented students to Cornell. Many former Summer Collegians apply to
Cornell, and each year a significant number of these students are
members of the entering class.

Again, we would be grateful to you for sharing this information with
individuals or organizations you think could benefit from our award-
winning Cornell program. This year's application deadline for most
programs is April 30. Students can connect with other Summer College
fans through the Facebook link on our home page and can reach us directly at or 607.255.6203.

Best regards,

Abby H. Eller, Director, and the Summer College staff
