summer-programs-for-high-school-students-980

Pre-college summer programs offer high school students a one or multi-week “college” experience. Such programs allow students to live in a dorm and complete one or more rigorous classes. Today, summer programs are an increasingly popular option for students who are hoping to get a sense of what college is like. Essentially, pre-college summer programs allow you to test-drive college life. These programs not only teach you new information and skills, they can also make you a more attractive candidate for admission into your top-choice schools! We want all of our College Map students to have a purposeful summer. If you're not participating in a summer program, please make the effort to attend academic, sports or school camps. Working during the summer is also a positive addition to your resume!

The Wellesley Pre-College STEM Exploratory Workshops

Week One STEM Workshop: July 27 - August 2, 2019.

Week Two STEM Workshops: August 4 - August 11, 2019.

STEM EXPLORATORY WORKSHOPS

According to 2011 data published the United States’ Department of Commerce, women are “vastly underrepresented” in science, technology, and math jobs, despite filling almost half of the jobs in the US Economy. At Wellesley, we strive to empower women to break glass ceilings, which is why we offer 2 one-week exploratory workshops for high-school girls looking to explore STEM fields, challenging themselves both personally and academically.

LH 2x

Test prep students, when you are registering for live classes utilizing our Acuity online scheduler, please make sure that you are signing up for the correct class based on your strength test. You should be signing up for either ACT or SAT classes, not the other and not both. This confusion is causing classes to fill up in error. Also, please do not sign up more than once for each individual class as this is also causing classes to fill up in error. We truly appreciate your CAREFUL attention to this matter.


Please sign up at our Acuity Scheduler website!
See below for our new 2019 calendars.

Please register for the ACT at act.org OR SAT at collegeboard.org. Please note there are early registration deadline dates. You can register after the deadline date but a late fee will be required.

There are many good scholarship search tools/engines on the internet. Their primary function is to assist you in finding scholarships that match the eligibility criteria you enter for GPA, gender, residency, ethnicity/heritage, religion and area of study, hobbies, interests — some of the most common criteria used. The College Map team recommends the following search engines:

Scholarships.com

FastWeb

Big Future

Unigo

SallieMae

Please make sure to "click" or fill out as much information as possible. Once you've entered your information into the database, the search engine will generate a list of all current scholarships you qualify for. We recommend sorting that list by due date.
