For over fifteen years, Marist has created a top summer pre-college program that gives students a sense of college life, provides a taste of a college major, and allows students to earn college credit all while still in high school. This year, we've expanded our offerings into three sessions: two on our beautiful riverfront campus, and one virtual. With nearly 20 unique courses to choose from, this summer's in-person sessions will take place over a two-week period with start dates of June 25, 2023, and July 9, 2023. Our three-week virtual offering will begin on July 10.


Session I (in-person): June 25 - July 8, 2023
Session II (in-person): July 9 - 22, 2023
