Located within the unceded territory of the Ute Peoples, Colorado College is unique among liberal arts colleges because of its longstanding Summer Session that creates a vibrant academic community year-round. The Pre-College Program provides students with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture of the college, with a combination of academic and social programming planned by our program assistants.

Pre-College students will be in class from 9:00am-12:00pm. In the afternoons, students will have time for science course labs, homework, class field trips, and general free time. Supplemental academic programming is provided 2-3 times each week from 4:00-5:00pm, and the evenings are open for the students to socialize, work on projects, and enjoy the community atmosphere at Colorado College.
