Carleton College Summer Programs

Every summer, high school students gather on the Carleton College campus for intensive academic experiences. Located in Northfield, Minnesota, Carleton offers the best of two worlds: the serenity of a beautiful 950-acre campus and the cultural opportunities of a major metropolitan area.

Carleton offers unique learning opportunities designed to fit the interests of high school students from across the country. Faculty, staff, and student mentors promote an academically rigorous and supportive environment for all program participants. Faculty members design classes to encourage active participation in the learning process.

Carleton offers two 3-week courses.  The Summer Writing Program has a long history at Carleton.  Students enjoy three-weeks of intenseive writing and examination of literature.  During the three-weeks, students will write three academic essays.

The Summer Science Institute is also a 3-week course where students can focus on different areas of science.  During the three weeks, students will complete a guided research project with the assistance of faculty support.  

Both courses offer 6 Carleton credit (equivalent to 3 semester credits), which typically transfer to other institutions.

Engage your mind! Join a group of inquisitive, creative, and inspired students in an extraordinary summer academic experience.
