Summer Scholars - residential courses for high school students
COVID-19 Update: Cedarville University has made the necessary, but disappointing, decision to cancel all on-campus events and camps for the summer, including Summer Scholars. However, we are pleased to offer you the opportunity to complete a Summer Scholars course virtually. Choose from The Bible and the Gospel, Politics and American Culture, or General Psychology and experience the same academic excellence and biblical worldview you would have enjoyed on campus, from the comfort and safety of your home. Contact your College Now advisor for more information. We'd love to help you experience virtual Summer Scholars!
Welcome to Summer Scholars, Cedarville's residential College Now option! Whether you are new to College Now or have already completed course work at Cedarville, Summer Scholars will be a highlight of your summer break.
Summer Scholars provides high school students with the opportunity to experience college life and earn 3 hours of college credit. Choosing one of five classes, you'll study with a top Cedarville University professor in a small class setting while you enjoy campus life for two weeks.
