Summer Session at  Skidmore

Summer Courses

The Skidmore College Summer Term features courses in the full range of the liberal and studio arts as well as several special-topics courses that vary each year. Summer classes are generally small, informal, and intensive, and hence present an opportunity to focus on and master course material, ideas, and skills. The classes are an ideal way to take advantage of concentrated study, fulfill college requirements, or accelerate progress toward a degree.  Visiting students from other colleges and universities are welcome to apply.

The Pre-College Program in the Liberal and Studio Arts is a summer college experience for high school students interested in exploring the liberal and studio arts—and in preparing for their future as college students. The program offers the opportunity to engage in college-level work in a student's areas of interest. The courses open to high school students are foundation-level courses offered as part of Skidmore's regular summer session. The experience is enhanced by evening events on campus—concerts, films, lectures, art exhibits, etc.—and by the summer life of Saratoga Springs. Credit and non-credit options are available.
