Summer Program for High School Students
The Lehman College Summer Program for High School students is offered through the Office of Special Academic Sessions in partnership with Lehman College’s School for Continuing and Professional Studies. This unique program is specifically designed for current high school sophomores and juniors seeking a summer campus experience. Program participants will be assigned a dedicated program advisor who will work with them throughout the semester.
The Lehman College Summer Program is designed for students interested in taking a course on a college campus enrolled alongside college students. Different from many high school programs, participants will be able to attend a class of their choosing (pre-requisite coursework required) alongside current Lehman College students. Students enrolling in the program may choose to take a course during any of the terms that begin in July.
Course credit earned by program participants is transferrable to most schools nationwide.
In addition to the academic experiences, students will be encouraged to fully engage themselves in all that Lehman has to offer. This includes use of the Apex, Lehman’s $60M athletics facility, the Leonard Lief Library, and Computer Labs.
Summer program participants will also have the option to enroll in the Friday’s at Lehman Summer program which is a non-credit bearing program that includes Zumba, Creative Writing, Community Service, and recreation time. Additionally, students may choose from a host of other options including SAT prep, ACT prep, and numerous physical fitness classes.
Applications will be accepted for this program beginning in February, 2017. The deadline for submitting Summer program applications is July 7, 2017. You may download an application at: Application Download [PDF]
