CTEQ Pre-College Summer Program
Each summer, high school students from across New England and around the country join Assumption College professors for a competitive pre-college program that introduces rising high school seniors to undergraduate studies in the liberal arts. Living on Assumption College’s 185-acre campus for the week, participating students gain firsthand experience of studying the humanities in a college setting.
