Clemson University Summer Scholars

CU Summer Scholars

ENRICHMENT PROGRAM for rising 7th-12th Grade Students

New Programs, New Opportunities


For the past 30 years, Clemson University has offered a summer enrichment program for gifted middle and high school students. In addition to challenging courses, we provide opportunities for fun, friendship and a true Clemson experience.  This year’s program has even more to offer with new classes for all students.

A balanced schedule of educational, recreational and cultural activities will help broaden your academic skills and develop your creative abilities. You will engage in exciting classes during the day, your evening and weekend activities could include nature study hikes, small group discussions with Clemson faculty, and career and educational guidance. In addition, there could be opportunities to enjoy movies, tennis, swimming, racquetball and trips to special University facilities such as laboratories, the John C. Calhoun House, the S.C. Botanical Garden, the Hanover House and the Clemson Forest.

This summer experience will give you a taste of life as a Clemson student. You will live in a semiprivate room, located in one of the on campus residence halls, and eat in a University dining hall. Qualified counselors will supervise dormitory life and all other activities. Access to complete area medical facilities, including the University health center will be available to you.

If you are an advanced high school student, the two-week classes provide a great opportunity to search deeply into specialized topics. All middle and high school students will enjoy the one-week introductions to college subjects. If you have attended this program in the past, you will see that we are offering some new and exciting courses this year! We encourage you to take a look at Clemson’s Summer Scholars program.
