Back of Students at Graduation

High School Scholars Program

Summer 2024 High School Scholars Program

Welcome!  We are pleased that you are interested in our High School Scholars Program!

The High School Scholars Program at St. John’s University provides high achieving rising senior year high school students the opportunity to earn college credits during the summer.  Students can enroll in up to two college-level courses, taught by St. John’s University faculty, on the Queens campus or Online.  These courses are available to our current St. John’s University students, and we are extending enrollment to eligible high achieving high school students.* 

The grades received under the Program will be part of the student’s academic record at St. John's University, and therefore will be reflected on the academic transcript and factored into the cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA). 

Future tuition grant: High School Scholars who enroll at St. John’s University the semester after high school graduation will receive a $2,000 Tuition Grant per year. 

Application Deadline: coming soon

Summer term: July 8 - August 8 (Summer Session II)

Cost per course: coming soon
