Welcome to Centenary Summer Scholars
Premier pre-college summer programs for high school students

Summer Scholars is a fantastic program now entering our 8th summer!

Centenary Summer Scholars feature pre-college summer programs 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 majors are a great way to experience the College environment.

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. Our pre-college summer programs also feature fun structured events outside of class as well as an academic trip to NYC.

Thousands of students from across the country and around the world have chosen CSS as their summer destination because of our unique mix of classwork and structured experiences as well as our excellent staff and top-notch facilities.  We work all year to ensure every aspect of the summer is planned and programmed as best as possible.

Download our PDF, check out our Facebook page, and call and talk to our Camp Directors.  This program is a very important experience for a student who is in high school and is planning on attending College one day!

Our Residence Halls Are Awesome

For our residential students, the rooms and the layout of the residence hall is always one of their biggest questions and concerns. Students and parents ask: What are the rooms like? What will the suites look like? Where does everybody hang-out? We answer: Well, each suite has 4 individual single rooms attached to a large common hang-out space and kitchenette. The hang-out space has couches and chairs so you can host some of your new friends, and the kitchenette space comes with a microwave, cabinets, refrigerator and stove. So you can make microwave popcorn and serve cold sodas to your new friends! Best of all, each individual room comes with it's own door, so it is a true private single, with a bed, desk and dresser. There are two bathrooms per suite, so each student shares a full bathroom with just one other student, which is very nice. The entire suite-system is very nice. The building is broken up into floors and halls, and each hall is organized by gender. So all of the girls could be on the third floor, and the boys on the second, for example. On the second floor in the middle of the building is a large social space with TVs, couches, foosball, and that sort of thing. That is where we have our morning meeting, and is the social epicenter of camp. The residential hall and experience is one of the biggest reasons why we are so popular! Come see why!


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!
