Summer College for High School Students partners with more than a dozen organizations and foundations to support programs that serve youth who are at risk of not reaching their full potential – particularly youth in low-income communities.
Of the 457 students enrolled in Summer College courses in 2017, more than 130 attended at no cost to themselves or their families thanks to these established partnerships. In the last eight years, 942 students have attended Summer College through these collaborations.
Two of the most significant partnerships are with the Charles Hayden Foundation (CHF) and the Price Family Foundation (PFF). CHF students attend for six weeks, take two classes and earn six Syracuse University credits. PFF students attend Summer College for four weeks and take two consecutive 2-week programs.
Syracuse University Summer College offers high school students the opportunity to explore college majors and experience college life with credit and noncredit programs.
