Colleges That Change Lives (CTCL) Remote Program

Posted by heo

Centre College is an original member of Colleges That Change Lives (CTCL), a group of schools committed to the ideal that both the college search process and the undergraduate adventure should be deeply personal and intentionally student-centered.

CTCL has partnered with our friends at StriveScan to put on a multi-day, fully virtual, interactive college program that will allow folks to learn more about CTCL and its member institutions. As your own academic year is winding down and you’re looking ahead to advising college searches in a new way, it’s my hope that you’ll be able to join me and some of my awesome colleagues across cyberspace for a session or two (or more!).

Below is the link that will lead you to the registration page and the sessions we’d be happy for you to join:
– Counselor Registration Form
– Session descriptions have been housed on the student registration page

Tuesday, May 26:
– CTCL and the Liberal Arts at 9am CT
– CTCL and the Liberal Arts at 4pm CT
– Centre College Session at 8pm CT

Wednesday, May 27
– CTCL Presentation for Counselors at 9am CT

Thursday, May 28:
– CTCL International at 9am CT
– Centre College Session at 5pm CT

Three important notes about these sessions:
1. You must register separately for each session you’d like to attend.
2. Sessions with the same name are identical in content – you don’t need to attend both, but you are of course welcome to!
3. All sessions are listed and conducted on Central Time (CT)!

In the meantime, here’s a handy link to some ways to get to know Centre College remotely! There are lots of resources on the page, and we hope it captures just a bit of the magic that makes Centre such a special place.

Sciences Po: The Sciences Po Summer School is moving online

Posted by heo

Sciences Po
photo_sciences_po
Each summer, Sciences Po opens its doors to high school students from around the world for the Sciences Po Summer School. The Summer School offers two programmes: the Pre-College Programme, open to students who are not in their final year of school, and the University Programme, open to students in their final year who will begin university studies in the Fall.

After careful consideration of the global health situation, the Sciences Po Summer School has decided to cancel the first session of the Pre-College Programme and move the second session online for Summer 2020.

While we are not able to welcome students on campus, we are committed to providing a safe and enriching academic experience that maintains Sciences Po’s rigorous academic standards. We would be excited to welcome some of your students to our online global community this summer!

The Pre-College Programme will be held in a remote format from July 20th to July 31st

Discover the 2020 Pre-College Programme

Academic Programme

The Pre-College Programme gives high school students a taste of university academics through rigorous coursework in the social sciences, which introduces them to the key disciplines and methodologies of a Sciences Po education. Participants explore current international issues from an interdisciplinary perspective through thematic master classes taught entirely in English by Sciences Po professors. Interactive tutorials reinforce learning, while preparing students for university studies through an emphasis on academic methodology. Elective classes, taught in English or French, allow students to focus on one of Sciences Po’s core disciplines (such as international relations, political science, or sociology).

All courses will take place via Zoom in a live, synchronous format to allow for maximum interaction.

You can find course overviews for Master Classes and electives, as well as class schedules, on the Summer School website.

Modification of fees

To reflect the online format, the Summer School will reduce the portion of its fees that are related to physically hosting students on Sciences Po’s campus, accommodation, meals and supervision of the group. The tuition fees for the Pre-College programme have been reduced from 4670 € to 2300 €.

How to apply

The Summer School is open to high school students from across the world. The eligibility criteria and application procedure are detailed on the Summer School website. The application deadline for the 2020 Online Pre-College Programme is 19 June 2020.

We sincerely hope that some of your students will be able to join us digitally this summer. We are currently working with our faculty to transform their courses to offer an exceptional online learning experience, and we are also creating a virtual social and cultural programme to recreate the multicultural social environment of the Summer School.

We hope that you remain safe and healthy, and that we will have the opportunity to welcome your students to Sciences Po soon!
