Other Programs to Provide High Schools Students an Opportunity to Experience College Studies and Campus Life

Assumption University will offer several courses this summer providing its students and those that study at other institutions an opportunity to advance their degree program or catch up on courses. Classes will be held in person and online. The University is also hosting a Great Books and mathematics program for high school students seeking to explore college-level academics and living on campus.

Summer registration opened on Monday, March 28, and will close on Wednesday, May 11. Summer Session I begins on May 23 and concludes on July 1; Summer Session II opens on July 5 and closes August 12. This summer, students may enroll in classes in accounting, art history, business, cybersecurity, English, history, literature, marketing, mathematics, psychology, theology, and more.

For more information, including a list of courses and descriptions, please visit the Summer Semester page on the University website.

CTEQ Pre-College Great Books Program
The University is also offering a Core Texts and Enduring Questions Pre-College Program this summer from July 10 to 15, for rising high school seniors interested in a competitive pre-college program that introduces them to undergraduate studies in the liberal arts and life outside of the classroom.

Students will live in residence halls and dine in the University’s dining facilities, while enjoying a week-long program in which they study great works of philosophy, literature, art, political science, and theology with nationally known faculty—as they simultaneously meet new friends and experience what collegiate academic life is like. 
Each morning and afternoon session takes place over two hours followed by an hour-long session on a non-academic theme, such as writing an impressive Common App essay or navigating life in a dorm with a new roommate.

Participants also take a trip to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston and attend a Worcester Bravehearts baseball game. The week-long program concludes with a business-casual dinner for pre-college students and CTEQ faculty, as well as a luncheon with students and their parents on the final day of the program.
Information, including a link to an application, can be found on the Core Texts webpage.

Assumption Institute of Math (AIM)
The University is also offering a day camp, this summer from July 18 to 22, for rising first-year and sophomore high school students who have a passion and curiosity for math. The Assumption Institute of Math, which is held on the University’s campus, provides students the opportunity to discover topics in pre-calculus and probability with a small student to faculty ratio. 

The camp is free and lunch will be provided each day.
