Summer Study and Summer Enrichment at Penn State



Summer Study allows students who have completed grade 10, 11 or 12 to take freshman-level courses for college credit while also experiencing university life. Each pupil enrolls in one or two college-credit classes, an enrichment offering and the Pathways to College guidance course. Shorter enrichment programs for pupils entering grades 10-12 enroll participants in two or three noncredit classes. Students in both programs may perform community service, enroll in SAT prep courses and visit nearby colleges on weekends. Two- and four-week enrichment programs serve students entering grade 9.
