Skidmore College
Pre-College
Academic Life


Taking on the demands of full-time college-level study, compressed into five weeks, is challenging for any student. For this reason, we encourage Pre-College students to study what they want to study, not so much what they think they ought to study. Choose a class in an area where you feel your strengths lie. Or delve into an unexplored subject to challenge your perceptions and discover new fields of knowledge. The path you take to prepare for your future as a college student is as unique as you are.

Pre-College students may enroll in any approved foundation-level liberal art online course offered as part of Skidmore’s Summer Session for college students.Skidmore’s summer 2021 curriculum allows students to take one online course. Offerings include a wide range of courses drawn from the humanities, social and natural sciences and an array of special topics courses from diverse disciplines that provide singular experiences.
