Skidmore College
Skidmore Pre-College Program
July 5 - August 8, 2020

COVID-19 UPDATE: After careful consideration of current projections surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, Skidmore College has made the difficult decision to cancel all on-campus summer academic programs, including the Pre-College Program, for 2020. Courses will not be offered online. All program application fees will be refunded. We very much regret the necessity for this decision and share in the disappointment it brings, but the well-being of all members of our community and our guests must remain Skidmore’s highest priority. Please refer to the College announcement for further information. We extend our thoughts and very best wishes to students and their families.


The Summer 2020 application is live!

I started my first year of college confident I could succeed thanks to Pre-College. I was much better off than my peers as I already knew how to live away from home, study at a college level and more.
