Summer Pre-College Programs at Marist College

Top 20 Pre-College Summer Programs ranked by College Consensus

For over fifteen years, Marist has created a top summer pre-college program that gives students a sense of college life, provides a taste of a college major, and allows students to earn college credit all while still in high school. This year, we're going virtual. While we would love to host you on campus this summer, our Virtual Summer Pre-College experience will be packed with opportunities for you to test drive a major and meet like-minded high school students from around the world. With 8 courses to choose from, this summer's courses will take place over a three-week period from July 6-24. We look forward to seeing you online!

At the conclusion of the program, we are hopeful we can offer an optional on-campus experience the weekend of July 24 - 26 where students will participate in social activities, get a campus tour, and experience life in the Hudson River Valley.

One of the top-ranked summer pre-college programs in the country, this exciting opportunity will provide you with a taste of life as a Red Fox while earning college credits and test driving your major. This summer, our Summer Pre-College program is adapting to a three-week virtual format from July 6-24, packed with hands-on online learning opportunities.
