College Placement

Summer Programs

Notre Dame Pre-College Summer Program
Applications live October 1, 2018 - Decisions will be released week of April 15, 2019! 
Program Date: June 22 - July 6, 2019

We welcome high school students who meet the following criteria to apply to Summer Scholars:
  • Current sophomores and juniors (will be rising juniors and seniors)
  • Strong academic standing with solid extracurricular activities
  • At least 16 years old by or on August 1, 2019
Summer Scholars participants spend two intense weeks in one of 21 exciting programs of study. We keep the classes small and personal attention from Notre Dame faculty high. The coursework is a true preview of college academics—it is both rigorous and rewarding, and students earn one college credit upon the completion of a program track. Students collaborate on coursework outside designated class times, as they would in any college setting. There is also ample time to enjoy the social facets of college life, especially those unique to Notre Dame.
