Become a Young Scholar at Santa Clara University
Each year select, highly-motivated high school students (currently enrolled in the 9th, 10th, or 11th grades) explore college in an intensive summer program that includes university courses, advising, and meetings with key people on campus. In addition to college credit (upon successful completion of their classes), students leave with a hands-on experience of college life. Please note: students are required to attend every class meeting. Travel and other summer programs must not occur during the dates of the Young Scholars Program.

What Young Scholars Have to Say About The Program
"I enjoyed my time at Santa Clara University thoroughly. Maybe this is more because of the small class size, but I really liked how interactive the classroom environment was. I liked the long classes because of we could really get deep into the content . . . Overall the experience was really valuable and I'm glad that I can go into senior year with the knowledge gained from my course." - 2017 Young Scholar
