The Summer Writing Program emphasizes a writing process approach, teaching you how to compose academic papers similar to those you will write in college. The program is designed for college-bound students with strong reading and writing abilities.
The Carleton Summer Science Institute will help students learn to think and write like a scientist by doing science. CSSI students, faculty, and Carleton undergraduate research assistants will engage in classroom and hands-on research related to faculty and student interests.
The Summer Quantitative Reasoning Institute is designed to give high school sophomores and juniors a substantial college-level experience in how social scientists think about the world, measure important variables of study, prepare research, and present their findings. Students will examine theories in three core disciplines - Economics, International Relations and Psychology.
Students will learn how to systematically approach problems like a computer scientist as they engage in classroom learning, hands-on lab activities, and collaborative guided research directed by Carleton faculty and mentored by undergraduate research assistants. The program will culminate with a Research Symposium where students will demonstrate the results of their collaborative guided research project.
The Summer Teaching institute is a week-long workshop for teachers of existing or proposed Advanced Placement, enriched, or accelerated classes in grades 7-12. Since 1980, Carleton has hosted more than 4500 teaches from over 520 schools nationwide.
