Dear Morck:

Happy New Year! I know it’s only January, but it’s actually time to start thinking about summer. Here at Columbia, plans are well underway to welcome a new cohort of students to our Pre-College programs this summer.

Through our Immersion program, students in grades 9-12 have an opportunity to try their hand at over 90 subjects normally reserved for college. For example: Constitutional Law, Investment Portfolio Management, Introduction to Material Science and Nanotechnology, and Introduction to Architectural Design and Theory, to name a few. By getting a taste of these subjects while in high school, students can save time and energy by honing their college interests at a young age.

I have had the pleasure of serving as a mentor to past Pre-College Immersion students who represent Columbia as ambassadors to prospective families. One recurring theme I hear from these ambassadors is how the program changed them in ways beyond simply learning more about a subject area. It’s these ancillary results that I believe are the true, hidden benefits of the program. Students return to their schools and thrive in new ways as a direct result of the maturity and confidence they gained from participating in this program. Honestly, I could go on, but I will leave you with this quote:

I've gained a new understanding of my passions as well as what kind of education I would like to pursue in the future. Outside of academics, this program has helped me establish critical life skills such as critical thinking and active participation. Prior to this program, I was always overly conscious of saying the right things and only participating when I knew I was definitely correct. Now I know that it's completely ok to be wrong and that the purpose of a class is to learn from mistakes, not just to prove your knowledge.

 –Yuna N., former Neuroscience and the Law student

Dear Kathy,

Help your students prepare for their college future with a Pre-College Summer Program at the University of Miami.

Students explore their academic passions and discover future career paths at the University of Miami’s Pre-College Summer Programs. There are two types of programs your students can enjoy: 

  • High-achieving high school sophomores and juniors can participate in an authentic college experience and earn six college credits in various academic areas in the Summer Scholars Program
