College Edge: Summer
In the College Edge program, students in grades 11–12 truly get the college experience by earning college credit as they learn alongside Columbia’s undergrad students on our Morningside campus. Students will also receive academic advisement and professional development opportunities.
The College Edge experience has allowed me to become more hard-working than I ever thought I could be, and I have made so many friends with such focus and drive."
– Timothy C.
Perhaps more than any other of our pre-college programs, learning goes beyond the classroom with College Edge. In this program, students prepare for college by experiencing college: they enroll in university courses to earn credit alongside undergraduate students; they will discover more about themselves in order to better understand their own values and strengths—and they will learn how to eloquently communicate who they are and what they stand for. Our dedicated Student Life team creates unique and effective workshops exploring these themes and more to help students prepare for both college and career, develop leadership skills, and make lasting connections with peers from all over the world.
