In order to reduce the potential impact of COVID-19 on the health and wellness of the Regis community, we have made the decision to transition the on-campus component of the Summer Scholars Program from an in-person event to a virtual experience.

A program made specifically for rising high school juniors and seniors, the Summer Scholars program at Regis College allows you to get a feel for college life and earn academic credit while still in high school.

Summer Scholars Program 2020 Dates

Virtual orientation: June 29, 2020

Online classes and virtual event engagement opportunities: June 30 - July 31, 2020

What is the Summer Scholars Program?
