Can “Summer School” = “Two of the Most Amazing Weeks of My Life?”

That’s how one high school student described her experience at Cedarville University's Summer Studies, a two-week residential program for rising high school juniors and seniors. Summer Studies offers a unique blend of rigorous academics, transformative spiritual and personal growth, and crazy fun with great new friends.

Offering a choice between three courses required as part of every Cedarville University major – The Bible and the Gospel, General Psychology, and Politics and American Culture – Summer Studies will allow your student to experience real college life, earn 3 hours of college credit, and make lasting friends that will journey alongside them for their entire undergraduate career at Cedarville.

This year’s Summer Studies takes place June 10–24 and costs $985, which includes the 3-credit course, housing and meals, and all activities. (Ohio students may qualified for free tuition through College Credit Plus. Check with your high school guidance counselor to see if you qualify.)

If your student is a rising junior or senior who is already taking College Now courses or has been accepted to the College Now program, no new application is required. Students who are not yet a part of College Now can apply today! Visit our website to view important dates and deadlines.
