This Summer: Skidmore Virtual Pre-College Program

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Skidmore’s Pre-College program will be offered as a virtual experience this summer, allowing high school students and their families flexibility and ease of access as they get a head start on college. 

Through the program, which runs July 5 through Aug. 6, students will immerse themselves in college-level academics, earn college credit and an official transcript, learn skills for navigating life as a future college student, and make connections with peers from around the world. 

In addition to enrolling in one course for up to four credits, participants receive access to virtual Skidmore Admissions workshops on choosing a college, applying to college, writing an admissions essay and other tips and insights into college life. They can also attend virtual extracurricular events and campus tours and get full access to College resources such as academic advising and tutors in Skidmore’s Philip Boshoff Writing Center.

Skidmore Pre-College course offerings span the humanities, social and natural sciences, studio art, and a diverse range of special topics that allow students to explore their interests or get ahead in a particular academic area. Faculty mentorship and small class sizes provide additional opportunities for support and feedback that are unique to the Skidmore experience. Skidmore Pre-College students are one of 100 or fewer students. 

Current high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors can now apply to the Skidmore Pre-College program, and decisions will be made on a rolling basis. The scholarship application deadline is April 1, and all other applicants should apply by June 1. 

Partial scholarships are awarded based on need and merit. To be considered, students must submit a completed program application and the scholarship application, available online.

To learn more, apply, or request additional information, visit the Skidmore Pre-College website at www.skidmore.edu/precollege.
