Our Summer Scholars Institute at Pace University is a groundbreaking intensive college experience, with a selective course of study designed for exceptional high school sophomores and juniors eager to experience the atmosphere of college and challenging liberal arts. Upon completion of the Institute, students will receive a Certificate of Course Completion and a letter of recommendation from the director of the program, which will help to strengthen college applications.

The Summer Scholars Institute is held on our New York City Campus in one of the finest cities in the world in one of the finest locations in the city, nestled between City Hall Park and South Street Seaport. Our dedicated faculty and staff have prepared the most interesting and challenging courses of study for your students. The courses are designed to illuminate the minds of prospective college students and the educational experience is matched with active exploration of the New York City cultural experience. Each track contains courses taught by Pace University faculty. Students also have the option of staying on campus in the dorms with us as a resident or commuting from home each day.

*The students being offered the five or more Guidance Counselor's Scholar Rate are not eligible for "Summer Scholarships" due to the fact they are already receiving a highly discounted rate.
