GWU Summer Programs

Summer Scholars Pre-college Program
The GW Summer Scholars Pre-College program is a 6 week residential program for accomplished high school students who have completed the 11th grade.  The program seeks to provide advanced learning opportunities for students, through enrollment in a credit bearing course, and enrichment programs that promote understanding of the academic communities and resources that make up the college experience.  Enrollment is limited and admission to the program is selective.  The program includes four modules as follow:

Academic Exploration- Summer Scholars enroll in an introductory GW course for credit with other GW students.  Flexibly structured programs such as talks, tours, and demonstrations, are organized around academic interests.  Students also participate in research skills and study strategy workshops.

First Year Writing- Students hone critical thinking and analytic writing skills through readings, discussion, and in class writing assignments, in preparation for college level writing.  Individual conferences are available for students to address individual writing concerns.

College Life- Brown bag seminars focus on a wide range of college life issues such as Freshman Experience, Student Leadership, Advising, and Career Planning.

Admissions- This weekly workshop encourages students to look beyond the admissions page to learn more about college programs, student life, and campus issues.  Comparing applications and examining essays leads to a discussion of understanding how they are used in the admissions process.  Mock interviews and committee simulations, as well as visits to nearby universities, are all part of this highly interactive and unique session.
