Here's how it works:

  • Complete a Pre-College Program during the summer before entering 9-12 grade. 
  • Or better yet, come for two Pre-College Programs. Pick a different program the second time around or come for the same one twice. Each year we mix things up.
  • Attend Penn College and receive $1,000 off your tuition each year if you came for one program. 
  • Or, get $2,000 off your tuition each year if you join us for two programs.
