Colorado College is unique among liberal arts colleges because of its longstanding Summer Session that creates a vibrant academic community year-round. Pre-College students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture of Colorado College, with a combination of academic and social programming planned by our Program Assistants. As a Colorado College Pre-College student, you will be in class from 9:00am until 12:00pm, while afternoons are used for occasional science course labs, homework, class field trips, and general free time. We have academic programming 2-3 times a week from 4-5pm, leaving the evenings open for the students to socialize, work on projects, and enjoy the community atmosphere at Colorado College.
