DePauw’s Summer Experience program introduces 14-18-year-old high school students to DePauw’s liberal arts experience and will foster students’ confidence in their problem-solving abilities and enhance their college readiness skills through two-day, one-night on-campus experiences.
Students will choose from a number of courses in one of six themes including:
- Create and Innovate
- Business and Leadership
- Art and Performance
- Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM)
- Equity, Sustainability, and Social Change
- College 101
The tuition fee to attend the Pre-College Program is $250. Scholarship funding is available and there will be no out-of-pocket costs for students whose families earn less than $200,000 per year. Questions about costs for the program can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sessions for Parents and Families
After students are dropped off on campus for the programs, parents, families, and guardians are invited to attend an information session hosted by DePauw staff about the college admission process and financial aid. When registering for a camp session, there is a question asking how many parents/guardians (if any) plan to attend the information session. These sessions will also be open to community-based organization staff members.
