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 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’ll take exciting classes during the day. Your evening and weekend activities may include nature study hikes, small group discussions with Clemson faculty, and career and educational guidance. In addition, you’ll enjoy movies, tennis, swimming, racquetball and trips to University 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’ll live in a semiprivate room in a campus dormitory and eat in a University dining hall. Qualified counselors will supervise dormitory life and all activities. You’ll have complete access to area medical facilities, including the University health center.
If you’re an advanced high school student, the two-week classes provide a great opportunity to delve deeply into specialized topics. All middle and high school students will enjoy the one-week introductions to college subjects. If you've attended this program in the past, you'll see that we're offering some new and exciting courses this year! We encourage you to take a look at Clemson’s Summer Scholars program.
