School Notes:

  • Gettysburg College is a nationally recognized, coeducational, residential college of liberal arts and sciences. The campus lies on 200 acres in a historic town that is home to an array of stores, restaurants and cultural and historical attractions, including Gettysburg National Military Park. Gettysburg College has an international draw with 2,500 students from 40 states and 38 countries!
  • Gettysburg College campus offers outstanding, state-of-the-art research facilities, residence halls, classrooms and athletic facilities. The summer programs for high-school students make use of all of these. Here, students have a whole new kind of summer experience. The two-week sessions combine total immersion in a focused and academic program with exciting field trips to nearby destinations and fun social activities in a college atmosphere.
  • Our academic programs extend beyond the classroom to provide the best experiential education, from having one-on-one interviews with admissions counselors to walking Civil War battlefields to conversing with legislators. Students collaborate with a committed and creative faculty and enjoy a wide range of special events and social opportunities. During the day, immerse yourself in your chosen program of study. During the evenings, nights and weekends, enjoy spending time with the entire camp and exploring all that campus offers.
  • When it comes to astronomy, equipment and technology go hand-in-hand with learning. Access to the best gear is essential! In the first week of our program, we cover topics in our own solar system; the second week we focus on stars. The morning is filled with talks, classes and movies while the afternoon is spent doing practical lab work.
  • Astronomy students will spend lots of time in observatories both on and off campus. We understand that some star-gazing is best done at night. It may be late indeed when you return to campus. On field trips, you may visit the National Air and Space Museum and Naval Observatory, study the motion of planets and stars in our planetarium or visit the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore Harbor .
