Summer for Success High School Program

A 3-Week Immersion Experience for Current 10th, 11th and 12th Grade Students Who Learn Differently

July 10 – 29, 2022


At Beacon College, we believe that education should be life-changing — and summer learning is no exception! Our summer programs are about self-discovery, skills development and confidence building. We promise students a great time as they learn to become better learners while forging new friendships with fellow students from across the country. Most importantly, all of our summer program students get to experience what it’s like to live — and learn — on a college campus.

Our summer program helps college-bound high school juniors and seniors and recent graduates who learn differently build the skills, confidence and preparation they need to successfully transition from high school. Students better understand their learning differences, recognize early stumbling blocks and know what they need to succeed in their first year of college.

Please note: We are excited to announce that the Summer for Success, Imagination Experience and Beyond Imagination! have reached their maximum enrollment for 2022! We are still accepting applications and admitted students will be placed on a waiting list for first-come, first-served enrollment when spaces become available. Students who are wait-listed for the 2022 program will be given an early enrollment option for the 2023 Summer for Success as well as priority consideration for our other short-term programs.

Beyond Imagination!

Cost: $7,500

This expanded “Imagination” program looks at Disney and much more – exploring the culture of escapism through not only theme parks, but attractions of all sizes.
