The goal of Lawrenceville Summer Scholars is to provide an educational summer program that produces innovative leaders, breakthrough thinkers, and imaginative problem solvers.  We challenge students to learn in powerful new ways, engage in active inquiry and develop a life-long commitment to personal, environmental and community responsibility.

Experiencing Lawrenceville’s House system and Harkness pedagogy, students learn in powerful new ways, engage in active inquiry, and develop a life­long commitment to personal, environmental, and community responsibility.

Our limited enrollment classes are small, and this low student-to-teacher ratio ensures that each summer scholar receives the individual attention one deserves to flourish in a safe and supportive environment. Our staff encourages scholars to learn and grow, to trust in their abilities, and to believe in themselves so that all reach their fullest potential.

Scholars, from the moment you enter a class at Lawrenceville, the experience is hands-on. We’ll challenge you, guide you, and encourage you to experiment as you engage in self-paced learning. We want you to leave the program with relevant 21st century skills. Balancing class time and outdoor fun, you’ll think critically, problem-solve, collaborate, socialize, and discover what you love doing.

Enrollment begins on November 15, 2018 and the first round of admission decisions will be announced on January 15, 2019.
