Are you ready to fall in love with Colorado College?

If you are a rising high-school junior or senior in Fall 2017, we invite you to apply to earn college credit in our pre-college summer program. 

High School students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the rhythm of the Block plan with current Colorado College students in Block A and Block B. These Blocks take place over 3.5 weeks, during which students will earn 4 semester hours of college credit.

Colorado College also offers a variety of enriching academic courses in a special 2.5 week Pre-College Block specifically designed to introduce high school student to the CC Block Plan. The Pre-College block is open only to rising high school juniors and seniors, who will earn 3 semester hours of college credit.

In addition to taking a course for college credit, students participate in robust co-curricular programming designed to support their holistic growth such as exploration of the Rocky Mountains, community service opportunities, arts and performance.

You need to arrive the day before the Block dates, above, to check-in to your residence hall, meet your program assistants, and join us for a welcome dinner and community meeting. Plan on spending a good amount of afternoon and evening time preparing for presentations, collaborating on projects, attending workshops to enhance your college applications, reading, and writing.

Classes generally meet from 9 am to noon on weekdays (although class times vary by subject and instructor). Science courses often include afternoon labs or field study in addition to morning sessions.  

Apply for one or both summer blocks (scholarships are available for rising seniors).

Chances are you'll agree with one of our former students:

"After this, I've fallen in love with the college. The location, the programs, and most of all the people have persuaded me to apply there for college."
