Skidmore’s Pre-College Program is intensive, rigorous and fast-paced, offering each student the opportunity to take ownership of his/her academic experience, learn to balance demanding coursework with free time and take full advantage of all available campus resources. We provide a number of academic services to support students throughout the program.
Online Academic Orientations
To help students acclimate to the shift from high school to college academics, we offer a number of online academic orientation sessions on July 5th, covering topics ranging from college-level study skills to time management to technology support.
Program staff members are available for online advising should students have any difficulties or concerns about their course. Advisors are happy to meet with students to discuss online courses as well as such matters as time management and study skills.
Writing Center (TBD)
This service is free for all Pre-College students.
We strongly encourage students to take advantage of these academic support services. The skills taught will be helpful and applicable to not only our college-level summer courses, but also to high school courses when students return home.
