Summer Pre-College Program for High School Students


Adelphi University’s Summer Pre-College Program is an exciting way to gain an unforgettable college experience as a high school student!

Open to students entering either their freshman, sophomore, junior or senior year of high school, Adelphi’s Pre-College experience brings together students from all over the world to live, learn and explore all that our University has to offer. Here, students will attend a college-level class each day, live in our new, air-conditioned residence halls, and eat in our fantastic dining hall! Adelphi’s beautiful and safe Garden City campus is just minutes from renowned beaches and parks, and just 23 miles from New York City, the world’s premiere city for art, culture, and entertainment.

Through this college-level program, high school students will explore an academic area of interest in a challenging and supportive University-based learning community. The Pre-College Program offers a variety of different course topics from which students can choose, and all Pre-College classes are taught by Adelphi’s nationally recognized faculty. Looking to earn college credit? Our for-credit class options provide students with the opportunity to earn 3 transferable college credits, which can be applied toward future degrees. We also offer non-credit program options for those students who wish to gain a unique college experience.

While living on campus, students will receive personalized attention from our professional and caring group of instructors, advisers and support staff. Daily trips and excursions round out this once in a lifetime summer experience!
