Programs for Rising Freshman?

CinnamonCinnamon Posts: 67Registered User Junior Member
edited May 2008 in Summer Programs
Are there any decent programs still open to applications for rising high school freshmen? I enjoy writing, politics, business, and the sciences. I know that JSA is open for a week or two more, but there seem to be many varied opinions on the program here on CC. There are also some two-week science courses at MSU that look interesting.

Are there any other options still available to application? Specifically, are there any business-related programs available to freshmen? Most seem to be limited to juniors and seniors.

Thanks for the advice!

    Here are some possible options for you. The don't have early enrollment deadlines, so if they are not full, you will still be able to register.

    Entrepeneurship at Union College:
    FivePoints 2008 - Summer Academic Camp at Union College

    Creative writing or Sports Management at Heidelberg:
    Heidelberg College - SummerBerg '08

    I second Concordia Language Villages; if you have any interest in any language, you'll find something there. Those aspiring to careers business could take Japanese, maybe? :-)

    For science, if you like computing, there are openings in the Web Design & Flash Animation week-long overnight camp or the Programming in C++ or Java camp at "id tech" sessions, university campuses around the U.S.

    (It is a fun challenge to look for programs that will take rising freshmen - my daughter loved Concordia Language Villages her rising freshman summer.)
