Program Description

The Georgetown University Summer College Immersion Program (SCIP) is a three-week college prep program for rising high school seniors from the Cristo Rey Network and KIPP Foundation school systems and select schools, networks, and community based organizations. Designed for high-achieving students with aspirations to apply to the most selective colleges and universities, our program provides a transformational learning experience and an introduction to college life.

As a student, you'll join 45 peers from across the country on campus at Georgetown, where you'll spend your time engaged in a combination of class sessions, field trips, group discussions, and hands-on seminars and workshops. You'll participate in the Georgetown Experience Seminars exploring international affairs, business, government, STEM-related fields, liberal arts, and health studies. Dive deep into your college search and leave the program with a completed college application essay, draft applications for your top college choices, a started account for the Common Application, and an action plan for submitting your college applications, financial aid, and applying for scholarships.

Outside of class, you'll have the opportunity to attend cocurricular evening programming, such as roundtable discussions and workshops, as well as off-campus outings, social events, and weekend trips.
