Emmanuel College Launches Intensive, Residential Summer Programs for High School Students

Weeklong programs in graphic design and business offer high school students a college-style academic experience in the heart of Boston

This summer, Emmanuel College is introducing a Summer Residential Enrichment program for high school juniors and seniors, offering students the opportunity to take a one-week, college-style academic course in graphic design or business/management, all while living on Emmanuel's campus in the heart of Boston.

Instructed by Emmanuel College faculty, the Summer Residential Enrichment programs will run from July 15 through July 21 and offer courses designed to provide students of all academic interests with an intensive learning experience that will allow them to attain practical and creative skills, engage their entrepreneurial spirit and help build their portfolios.

"Emmanuel's Summer Residential Enrichment programs offer opportunity and direction for exploration, which is so vital to the liberal arts and to what students will learn in college," says Dr. Lisa Stepanski, coordinator of Summer Residential Enrichment programs and Emmanuel's associate dean of humanities & social sciences/professor of English. "This is an incredible opportunity for students interested in visual communication or entrepreneurship to get a feel for the engaging and collaborative environment that is the Emmanuel College experience."

In addition to day-to-day classroom instruction, these programs will incorporate evening-structured learning activities and subject-related field visits in the city of Boston throughout the week.

"Working alongside peers and professionals in the epicenter of Boston, program participants will bridge the gap between education and the real world, the hands-on and the theoretical," Stepanski says. "The modern workforce demands individuals who can think strategically, conceive innovative and creative solutions, and communicate exceptionally well. The multifaceted and ever-evolving fields of design and business are ideal for developing these skills and others. "

Summer Residential Enrichment programs are open to students of all academic interests, and do not require previous graphic design experience or entrepreneurial knowledge. To learn more about these programs—or, to register—click here.
