Summer Studies Offers Amazing Experience for Students

January 20, 2021

Summer studies

“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 Scholars, 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 from among four courses that satisfy general education requirements in any Cedarville University major – The Bible and the Gospel, Essentials of Economics, General Psychology, U.S. History, and Politics and American Culture – Summer Scholars will allow your student to experience real college life, earn three hours of college credit, and make new friends that will journey alongside them for their entire undergraduate career at Cedarville.

This year’s Summer Studies takes place June 12–26, 2021, and costs $999, 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.

P.S. Please note that Summer Scholars will adhere to any necessary COVID precautions to ensure the safety of students and staff.

See What Parents and Students Say About Cedarville's College Now

October 26, 2020

College Now LogoIf your student is ready to get a head start on his or her college education, Cedarville's College Now dual-enrollment program is a great option. Students can take challenging college courses with a distinctly biblical worldview. They'll learn from outstanding, godly professors and interact with Christian students from around the world. 

But don't just take our word for it — listen to what a College Now parent and student had to say about their experience:

"As parents of two College Now students, we are grateful for the opportunity that our children have to participate in this excellent program. All aspects of the program have been top-notch. The application was straightforward, and communication throughout the process kept us well informed. Once admitted, the academic advising was absolutely outstanding. Our children's advisor was both kind and competent, and kept them informed with recommended classes based on their career interests, clear instructions on how to enroll in their classes, information about the services available to them as students, and enthusiastic encouragement to them as they began their "college careers" while still in high school. Their online courses have exceeded our expectations with excellent curriculums and professors. It is so beneficial to our family to have this education delivered within a Christian college setting."

– Parents of two Cedarville College Now students, Dublin, Ohio


"I am taking Politics and American Culture. I really enjoy the class and chapel. Cedarville University is absolutely wonderful at making Christ the center. I am so glad I learned about Cedarville University. I feel God sent you to us!"

– College Now student, Lima, Ohio

Virtual Summer Scholars

May 20, 2020

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 your student 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 a College Now advisor for more information. We'd love to help your student experience virtual Summer Scholars!
