Get your education started early with Hartwick's Summer College for High School Students. You'll get the full Hartwick experience during our three-week program. You'll be taught interesting subjects by our expert faculty in small classes. You'll get hands-on experience, you'll learn more than you thought you could, and you'll have a great time doing it.

When you're not in class, you'll experience the rest of what College is all about -- living in a residence hall, taking part in exciting on-and off-campus activities, and much more. After completing Hartwick's Summer College for High School Students, you'll be better prepared when you enroll in college full time. You'll have a head start on your academic career, transferable credits, and something even more valuable: real college experience to help prepare you for your future career.
