Welcome to Centenary Summer Scholars

Summer Scholars is a fantastic program!

Centenary Summer Scholars is a co-ed academic program for rising 8th through 12th grade students. Located in Hackettstown, New Jersey, Centenary College provides a fun and creative learning space in which students can make the most of our wonderful resources

Our summer scholars program allows students to explore their academic passions. We introduce subjects that school may not offer, while encouraging students to experiment with classes as they begin to consider their college major.

Get Ready for a Summer of a Lifetime

This summer we are excited to offer our most popular courses! We offer three one-week sessions, and students choose one course per session (which we refer to as their Major).  All courses accept students at all levels. For those interested in attending a class for multiple sessions, they can continue learning without repetition. Our talented staff and diverse group of students make for a remarkable summer experience. Helping to ensure another successful summer, most of our staff are returning for their third or fourth (or even more) summer with us! Our directors, teachers and residential advisors put together an amazing program of classes and activities that ensure students are learning and having fun from morning till night.

Our Courses

Centenary Summer Scholars gives rising 8th–12th grade students the opportunity to immerse themselves in one course of study for a full week. Students choose one intensive course of study at the time of registration (which we refer to as their Major). Students may sign up for multiple sessions, choosing a different course each session; students may also benefit from the intense focus that multiple weeks in the same course would provide.  The choice is yours!  The most important thing is to join us on campus for the summer of a lifetime!
