Marlboro College expands high school students summer program

Friday April 19, 2013

MARLBORO -- Building on the success of a pilot program last summer, Marlboro College is set to offer its second summer of weeklong programs for high school students. The college will offer nine programs, each one combining an introduction to college-level work with hands-on exploration, from mid-June to late July this year.

"Many other colleges run summer programs, but the opportunity to do both experiential learning combined with substantial, but not overwhelming, college learning is usually missing," said Ariel Brooks, director of non-degree programs at Marlboro.

Marlboro’s summer programs offer young adults the opportunity to study with college faculty members and to build relationships with a group of other students passionate about learning, in the classroom and out. Each summer program focuses on a specific subject area, with titles like "DNA: Barcode of Life," "Poetry on the Peaks," "Eating Against the Machine" and "I Think Therefore I Make."

The final deadline for application for the summer programs is May 31, 2013. For information on the programs or to apply visit
