Why Pre-College

Summer Pre-College

Expand your academic and creative aspirations! Rising juniors and seniors in High School are invited to attend one of the Summer Institutes at Marist College - ranked one of the "Best 373 Colleges and Universities," and "25 Most Connected Campuses" by the Princeton Review. You'll learn from experienced professionals and talented faculty, while spending 14 days in your choice of the heart of the historic Hudson River Valley, or the birthplace of the Renaissance!

You'll have several class sessions each day mixed with time to study, local excursions, day-long field trips and, of course, recreation. Living in dorms, eating in the cafeteria, studying in the state-of-the-art academic facilities, and enjoying either of the beautiful Marist campuses will provide you with a well-rounded college experience. Your days will be full, demanding, fun, and rewarding. You'll make new friends and maybe even discover what you want to be when you grow up. Think that'll happen at a summer job?
