Overview: The Who, What, When and Where


Students entering grades 10, 11 or 12 in the Fall Semester 2023 are cordially invited to apply to be accepted into this unique program to experience one or more college courses. Students in 10th grade will take interesting college level classes they are curious about, but do not receive college credit. Students in 11th and 12th grade can earn up to six (6) college credits. Please read below to see what students need to do to complete their application and be considered for this program.


The Summer High School Scholars is a scholarship initiative that provides a full scholarship to most students accepted into the program by the College as long as their application is submitted early.  Not only do students get an insider’s view into college life but they learn valuable skills and insights in such fields as Audio, Music, Digital Arts and Multi-Media, and the Performing Arts. Students in 11th and 12th grade earn college credits. The classes offered are college level courses that can be used to apply to the College. A culminating event is scheduled for the end of the program. At that time, family and friends are invited to view student projects and performances. This event is The Sights and Sounds of Summer 2023.


The  dates for the 2023 Summer High School Scholars program will be published shortly. The program typically runs from Monday though Thursday for five weeks. Individuals are encouraged to apply as early as possible, to be considered for the full scholarship (there may be some small fees not included in the scholarship). After that date, students should still apply since tuition is very affordable even if they are not granted the full scholarship.


The beautiful suburban setting of Five Towns College located in Dix Hills, NY is where all the fun and learning takes place. Our campus is conveniently located right off of the Long Island Expressway and there is ample parking. All courses take place in air-conditioned classrooms and studios.
