• Stockton University Science Enrichment Academy (S.E.A.S. 2018)

    Posted by Karen Talbot on 4/26/2018 5:30:00 PM

    Dear Parents and Students,

    When you think about a distinctive institution of higher education, we hope you think about Stockton University.  When you think about Stockton University and its innovative, collaborative programming and initiatives, we would like you to think about our Science Enrichment Academy at Stockton (SEAS).  The SEAS Program is a two-week residential experiential learning opportunity for rising high school seniors.  Participants will be involved in classroom, laboratory and field experiences as well as overnight camping in a New Jersey State Forest and a New Jersey State Beach.

    The 2015 through 2017 SEAS programs exposed participants to the process of scientific inquiry.  The participants gained experience gathering, measuring and analyzing data.   The participants report that the two weeks that they spent on campus made a tremendous difference in their lives.  All of the participants have chosen STEM majors and more than 55% have been accepted to Stockton University.  The students developed friendships and enhanced their ability to engage in group work as they developed their final group projects. 

    We are planning to invite 24 rising seniors to the Stockton University Campus from July 8 through July 21, 2018.  The participation fee for SEAS will be $1000 with scholarship opportunities available.  In order to be considered for SEAS, students should meet the following criteria: 

    • The student must be a high school junior during the 2017-2018 school year
    • The student must be willing to live on campus for the duration of the program.
    • The student should have no less than a B- average in their high school coursework with at least a B or higher average in science and math courses.
    • Students who have demonstrated very strong interest in science outside the classroom can also be strong candidates for the Academy. 

     We encourage all qualified applicants to apply.  The application can be accessed by going to the Stockton University homepage, www.Stockton.edu, and clicking on the Science Enrichment Academy link on the bottom right of the page.  For additional information please contact me at 609-626-6084 or Amanda.Allen@Stockton.edu.

  • Fordham University Summer Session 2018

    Posted by Karen Talbot on 3/21/2018 3:45:00 PM

    Dear Students and Parents,

    Fordham Summer for High School Students

    Two Students in Wood Paneled Lecture Hall - LG

    July 5 - August 6, 2018

    The Pre-College Program allows you to enroll in one of several exciting college courses and gain experience at a top-ranked research university in the summer before your senior year.

    • Earn college credit. Unlike other programs hosted for high school students on college campuses, courses offered to Fordham Pre-College students are part of the regular summer curriculum. That means you will complete college-level coursework and earn credits while sharing the classroom with current undergraduates and Fordham faculty.
    • Make valuable connections with students, professors, and administrators. Spend time on a college campus and make more informed decisions about your future.
    • Strengthen your college application with a proven record of your abilities.

    About the Pre-College Program

    The Pre-College program is a selective commuter program designed to provide high school juniors and seniors with experience, connections and knowledge from their participation in undergraduate college courses. The program provides transferable college credits.

    Courses

    Pre-College courses are specially selected from among Fordham's course offerings for Summer Session II (July 5- August 6). Courses cover a wide range of subjects and disciplines, and many can be used to fulfill university core requirements. Most courses meet three times per week. See a complete list of our recommended courses.

    Locations

    You can choose between courses meeting at either Fordham's beautiful Rose Hill campus in the Bronx — which features 85 acres of rolling lawns, tree-shaded walkways and Gothic-style buildings — or attend a course at the Lincoln Center campus, located in the culturally-rich West side of Manhattan. Both locations have unique features and benefits.

    Who can apply?

    • Rising seniors with a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.0 (B) or better.
    • Mature high school sophomores (entering your junior year) who have an exceptional record of academic performance may apply for special consideration.
    • You must be able to travel to one of Fordham's two campuses, Rose Hill or Lincoln Center, at least three times per week. (University housing is not available for this program.)
