Summer Studies

About TIP’s Summer Studies Program

Summer Studies students join a motivated, welcoming intellectual community and attend a three-week course that covers as much as a semester-long college course. They spend the day engaged in interactive, inquiry-based learning and the evening in beloved residential activities. 


Use our searchable course database to find the course for you.


Students qualify for Summer Studies with their ACT or SAT scores.
