Casual summertime apparel is all that is necessary. For some of the special events we suggest students bring a couple of nice outfits. We will send you a suggested clothing/packing list in the spring.
We encourage all students to bring some spending money for snacks, souvenirs, and so on.
Students will be assigned a college dorm room with another student. Students will reside in Laurel Village. Within the dorm, certain floors will be designated for females and the other floors for males. Each floor has a kitchen, lounge, laundry facility, and community bathrooms. The dorm rooms consist of two twin size beds, two desks, two closets, and a landline phone. All dorms have computer labs and wireless Internet access. Roommates will be assigned prior to the student’s arrival for the program.
We carefully select all of our counselors for the program. All of our counselors are undergraduate or graduate students that have experience working with teenagers. We strive to create an environment that is fun and exciting, with a variety of activities, to keep the students busy during most of their free time. The counselors and all program staff is on duty 24 hours a day to supervise students in and around our residence halls as well as all of the excursions and activities.
Yes. Though it is limited, we do have financial aid and scholarships available. Financial aid is strictly need-based, and applicants are required to submit appropriate supporting documents. Students in need of financial assistance must first apply and be admitted to the programs, prior to any financial aid determination. For more information, please contact us.
This is a non-credit program, and students will not receive grades on their work. Upon completion, students will receive a certificate of completion.
All classes and activities will be conducted in English. We are unable to provide ESL (English as a Second Language) support.

For International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP), or Cambridge International Exams (CIE) students, TOEFL exam requirements can be waived. If none of the above applies, please complete the Demonstration of English Proficiency (Word) and upload it with your application.
