Madison, Wis. (April 2, 2019) – Edgewood College is pleased to announce the launch of the Summer Scholars program. This unique academic opportunity is designed for students entering sixth grade in the fall of 2019. Scholars will engage in experiences that build their academic skills. The weeklong program runs from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm, July 15 – 19, 2019, on the campus of Edgewood College.


Throughout each day, Scholars will experience project-based classes in the Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences, all taught by faculty at Edgewood College. All students entering sixth grade, including those from public schools, private schools, and home-schooled students are welcome to apply. Students who apply should be behaviorally mature and ready for an advanced, supported academic challenge.
