Located in Greifwald, an idyllic medieval university town on the Baltic Sea about 2.5 hours from Berlin, GGE Summer School offers high school students an opportunity to take a freshman level college course taught by world-class professors at American universities. In addition to academics, students participate in a choice of recreational activities (digital photography, sailing, horseback riding, windsurfing, tennis, and golf) or a custom-designed internship. Three levels of conversational German classes are also offered (beginner, intermediate, and advanced). The program includes excursions to nearby islands, a three-day weekend in Berlin, and an intensive 'College Admissions Bootcamp' led by Janet Stark. Accommodations are in a residential hotel supervised by residence assistants, and everyone gets a bicycle. No prior knowledge of German is required and scholarships are available.
