2022 Summer High School Scholars Program

Summer High School Scholars: A Selective Scholarship Initiative

It’s approaching quickly . . . The Sights and Sounds of Summer 2022!

Please Note: There is a mandatory Covid vaccination policy in place for all who are invited to participate


The Summer High School Scholars program is an institutional selective scholarship initiative started in 2021.  Students entering grades 10, 11 or 12 in the Fall Semester 2022 are cordially invited to apply to be accepted into one or more of our summer college courses. Individuals who apply early and are accepted by the College will receive a full scholarship (there may be some small fees not included in the scholarship) to participate in this initiative. After a certain date-to be posted soon-those who want to participate will benefit from a very affordable tuition if they are not granted the scholarship. Students will learn valuable skills and insights in such fields as Music, Media and the Performing Arts. These classes will give you an insider’s look into what college life is like!

These are college level courses that can be used to apply to the College. At the conclusion of the summer schedule (the scheduled will be posted soon), family and friends will be invited to view student projects and performances. The culminating event, The Sights and Sounds of Summer 2022 will be scheduled soon.

Qualified High School 10th, 11th and 12th graders who apply and are accepted, after an audition/interview, will be eligible to have the cost of the program covered by this summer scholarship. All interested students are encouraged to apply early as this program has had great demand! All courses take place in air-conditioned classrooms and studios. Actively participate in these interactive college level classes! Meet other like-minded students and pursue your creative passions at Five Towns College!!

Interested students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible (application is below). Don’t miss out on this opportunity to enrich your life and experience college life on a beautiful suburban campus right here on Long Island.
