You’ll finish the summer enriched in more ways than you can imagine and better prepared than ever to get into your top pick college—and succeed once you’re there. Earn college credits this summer from one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious

Sample Schedule / Life on Campus / Extra Opportunities:
Life on Campus
Residential life is as much a part of the college experience as actual coursework, and at Georgetown, it's an exciting lifestyle filled with
opportunities. Special floors are set-aside for high school summer program residents, and each double room is Ethernet-wired.
You'll make lifelong friends and important connections through a variety of events and activities. Mix and mingle at ethnic dinners, ice
cream socials, and pizza parties. Play tennis and soccer or go for a swim. Get crazy at "Talent Night." And anywhere and everywhere,
hang out and have fun with people who share your dreams. Georgetown University is serious about the success of our summer students.
To ensure that success, students have access to numerous campus resources, including the Joseph Mark Lauinger Memorial Library, the
Language Learning Technology Center, University Information Services, athletic facilities at the Yates Field House, and the MBNA Career Education Center. The Academic Resource Center provides accommodations in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
