Skidmore College


Residential Life

At Skidmore, high school students can imagine their futures while living together, cultivating new friendships and discovering just the right balance between work and fun. A carefully selected and trained residential staff, which includes the residence hall director and resident hall advisors (RAs), live with Pre-College students in their own private residence hall. The residential life program, designed to support and complement academic and artistic endeavors, ensures that students' social lives are every bit as exhilarating as their intellectual lives.

the Pre-College Program

On Skidmore's lively campus, Pre-College students will find college students, of course, but also visiting students and faculty from other programs. Pre-College students are invited to take active part in the special workshops, visiting artist lectures and gallery talks sponsored by Skidmore's Summer Studio Art Program. The campus calendar offers many other concerts, lectures, events, and weekend on-campus activities, to say nothing of downtown Saratoga Springs' dynamic cultural and arts scene—proving that summer at Skidmore is much more than just summer school
