The Catholic Schools Foundation, a nonprofit that provides scholarship and non-scholarship support to Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Boston, has awarded to Regis College scholarships for high school students who wish to experience campus life and earn college credits this summer.    

The Summer Scholars program at Regis is an academic experience for rising junior and senior high school students to experience college-level coursework and campus life during the summer. The Catholic Schools Foundation generously provided funding for three scholarships for students to enroll in the program.  

Summer Scholars offers a range of courses across various disciplines, allowing students to explore their academic interests in a more rigorous setting. Participants benefit from small class sizes, personalized attention from faculty, and access to campus resources, which foster an enriching educational environment. Students live in residence halls and experience what it is like to live and learn on a college campus.  

“The Catholic Schools Foundation provides students in financial need with opportunities to be inspired and transformed through a Catholic education,” said Michael Reardon, Executive Director of the Foundation. “Through the generosity of our supporters, the Foundation provides pathways for low-income children to become moral, thoughtful and productive adults. Participation in this program with Regis College allows some of our scholars to begin their college careers while still in high school and earn college credits.” 

“The value of Summer Scholars can be found in its ability to prepare high school students for the demands of college academics and the college application process while building their confidence in a collegiate setting as they earn college credits,” said President Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN. “The program encourages personal growth, independence, and the development of lifelong learning skills, making it a valuable experience for prospective college students. Regis is grateful to the Catholic Schools Foundation for recognizing the importance of this program and how it can prepare students for their undergraduate journey.” 

The next Summer Scholars program begins on July 7 and concludes on July 26.
