Adelphi Offers Pre-College Program to Prepare High School Students for a Promising Future

GARDEN CITY, N.Y. - June 22, 2018 - PRLog -- With sessions beginning mid to late July, Adelphi University is offering pre-college courses for high school students to gain a memorable college experience. The residential program provides a hands-on opportunity to engage in college learning while still in high school.

"As most high school students are now beginning summer break, it's not too late for them to enhance their summer plans and add a resume-worthy college experience," said Kristen Capezza, associate vice president for enrollment management. "Students can also earn college-credit to get a jump start on their path toward a bachelor's degree."

The programs for students entering their sophomore, junior or senior year in fall 2018 include:

• Business and Entrepreneurship
• Introduction to Digital Media Production
• Introduction to Video Game Programming
• Introduction to Nursing
• Psychology and Pop Culture
• Science, Technology and Art
• Exploring Musical Theater

Designed to develop academic, personal, and professional skill sets, these courses will supply opportunities for students to gain three transferable college credits, learn in state-of-the-art facilities, experience the culture of nearby New York City, and enjoy living on Adelphi's blossoming campus. The programs noted above all run from July 22-August 4.

There also will be a Bridges Launch Program July 19-August 4 for incoming Adelphi students with autism spectrum disorder, a nonverbal learning disability, or problems with executive functioning or socialization.

Other options include the non-credit Sciences, Medicine and Health: Winthrop Summer Science Institute Day Program with two sessions: July 16-20 for commuter students and July 23-27 for residents.
