The Summer Scholars is a summer program open to high school students who have successfully completed their sophomore or junior year, enabling them to enroll in undergraduate courses at Loyola University Chicago and earn college credit. The program is open to both residential and commuter students. Additional extramural activities engage students in on-campus recreation; introduce them to cultural arts, sports, and service-based activities in Chicago; and help them discover what residential life is like at a great urban university.
Summer Scholar students will have the opportunity to meet with advisors and other members of Loyola University Chicago’s Undergraduate Admission Office to discuss the college admission process, on-campus social and cultural life, and Loyola’s commitment to service and social justice. Students will also tour the library, laboratories, and other facilities, and meet with other student groups in residence at Loyola.
Summer Scholars exposes prospective students to a values-based Jesuit education in the diverse urban environment of Chicago.
Summer Scholars offers talented and motivated students from around the country and around the world the opportunity to grow both intellectually and socially by:
- building community with peers, college student leaders, and faculty and staff;
- learning the skills and knowledge essential for college success;
- immersing themselves in their academic passions both in and outside the college classroom.
We are committed to service excellence and to empowering students to learn and grow as well-rounded individuals in the service of humanity.
