School Notes:

  • The George Washington University Summer Scholars program offers two exciting programs for cademically motivated high school students.
  • The 6-Week Precollege Program for high school juniors (rising seniors) lives a preview of an authentic college experience. Students earn academic credit in a course of interest and enroll in First Year Writing, a course especially designed for Summer Scholars. Academic exploration and college life are examined through weekly talks and demonstrations. Weekends include a rich variety of recreational activities that take advantage of summer in the Nation's Capital.
  • The pre-college program is a six week residential program for students who are ready for a real college experience. You will earn credit in a course of your choosing, which you will take with GW undergraduates, and you will earn additional credit through a writing course which you will take with other Summer Scholars. Weekly seminars such as Academic Exploration, College Life, and Beyond Admissions, will allow you to learn more about issues of primary concern to students who are at the point of transitioning into college. AndÖ.you will enjoy a truly different summer as you explore the nationís capital with the friends from all over the country and from different parts of the world.
  • Finding just the right balance of academic intensity and recreation is essential to making the most of your summer. The Smithsonian Museums, The National Gallery of Art, the Kennedy Performing Arts Center, Georgetown, U-Street, and a multitude of historic sites offer endless extracurricular opportunities. Recreation continues into the early evening with outdoor concerts, Screen on the Green, or a lazy paddle along the Potomac. Whether itís frisbee on the quad, pick up soccer, or lounging on Thompson Boat Dock, there are plenty of chances for you to meet new people, try new things, and expand your horizons.
