Summer Scholars

For Guidance Counselors

Do you have current sophomores or juniors interested in furthering their educational experience during the summer? Are your students beginning to prepare for the college application process? Are your students eager and ready to explore exciting places such as New York City with like-minded individuals? If so, the Summer Scholars Institute at Pace University may be a ideal opportunity for your students!

The Summer Scholars Institute at Pace University is a groundbreaking intensive college experience, offering a selective course of study designed for current high school sophomores and juniors eager to immerse themselves in the social and academic atmosphere of college life. Upon successful completion of the Institute, students will receive a Certificate of Course Completion. Those who subsequently matriculate at Pace will also receive three elective credits.

The Summer Scholars Institute is held on our New York City Campus, 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 their students. The courses are designed to enrich the minds of prospective college students and the educational experience is matched with active exploration of the New York City cultural experience. Each of the five tracks (Business, Psychology, Theatre Arts, Criminal Justice and Digital Film) consists of courses taught by Pace University faculty. This is a "learning and living program" so students are also able to have the full college experience of residing on campus in the residence halls.

Contact us to begin planning for the educational future of your students. Our website has additional information about our program. The application process opens on Jan. 15, 2019.
