CSS was completely SOLD OUT last summer!  We have added an additional session this summer to accommodate demand but we do urge families to enroll as soon as possible in order to secure a spot.  Join our summer academic camps NJ based Centenary University.  We are first-come first-served!  We have had students from almost every state and over a dozen other countries. Our students are very different, but they have each discovered in CSS the best summer enrichment program. Join us to see why!

Enrollment Deadline: Summer Academic Camps NJ:

Rolling deadline: for students who would like to enroll, simply go to our registration section and enroll as soon as possible. Limited space remains in all three sessions; once the last beds are full, we will close the enrollment, or one week before each session, whichever occurs first.

Enrollment Process

Admission is rolling and subject to class size at our summer academic camps NJ. We do not require letters of recommendation, transcripts or essays. Online applications will be accepted up until the program is sold out or one week before your desired session start day. It is recommended that all students complete their online application and deposit as early as possible to reserve their seat.

Application Deposit – $250

A non-refundable deposit of $250 per student per session is required to reserve your space. The deposit will be applied to your full tuition. Your final payment and student profile are due by June 1. For students applying after June 1, please pay the tuition upon enrolling, or as soon as you can thereafter, so long as all tuition is paiud before camp starts!

Optional Airport Transportation Service

We offer pick-up and/or drop-off service from Newark International Airport (EWR). One-way service is $95; round-trip is $175. Staff members escort students to and from campus. Centenary University provides or arranges for all vehicles and drivers. Please e-mail us your actual itinerary and receipt from the airline, clearly listing the airline, flight number, times and student name as soon as possible. Please get us your itinerary as soon as you can so we can plan; we know it takes time to find the best flights!  We will contact you the night before your flight, with a picture of and the name of the person doing the pickup, and we will make sure to contact you once we have picked up your child!  Don’t worry, we do this all the time and we are very good at connecting with the students!

Super Saturday Trip:

Each Saturday just after the session ends, except after the last session, we head out on a day trip.  Last summer we went to Six Flags. This summer we will be doing Six Flags as well as an additional trip which we will announce soon.  Any student may add on the Six Flags trip if they would like.  This all day event includes a bag lunch and the Six Flags meal plan.  Staff accompany the students to and form the park and it will be a great day!  This add-on trip ($150) is part of the enrollment process so you can add it during enrollment, or you can add it later.  This will be a great way to do something fun with some of the new friends you made during the week.

Refund Policy:    

On or before June 1 – All tuition, and any additional charges, will be refunded excluding the $250 non-refundable deposit, per student, per session, at our summer academic camps NJ.

After June 1 – No tuition, including any additional charges, for any student who withdraws or is
dismissed for any reason will be refunded.

Tuition and Fees

Students can attend any and all sessions of CSS. Students who choose the same course for multiple sessions do not repeat their curriculum, rather they continue learning at the same pace. Organized into week-long modules, each curricula contain many weeks worth of work. We encourage students to attend multiple weeks by giving discounts for such attendance.

Payment Timing – Pay On Your Schedule!

Once a student’s account has been established by registering and paying the deposit, additional payments can be timed to your schedule. You can log in and pay any amount at any time without penalty. So whether you want to log in weekly and make small payments of varying amounts, or monthly, or even log in once and pay the balance in full, our system will accommodate your payment timing with no additional fee, problem or hassle. Simply log in and pay what you can, when you can, until your balance is zero. We make this as easy as possible.

Multi-session Pricing Discount – Attend More Than One Session and SAVE!!!

Our program is built around one-week-long modules.  If you choose to attend any week, you will have a fantastic experience.  That being said, though, in our experience students who attend more than one session extend and expand their experience exponentially.  Once the students get in the groove, and are really focusing on their academic and social experience, we find that their experience in the second and/or third session that they attend is that much more important and powerful.  The student at that point understands the schedule, the teachers, and the opportunity at hand.  So while we build the program around a one-week experience, we do encourage students to take advantage of the opportunity by offering discounted pricing on multi-week attendance.  Typically most students attend either one or two sessions, though many (including most of our international students) choose to attend all four session.  Whatever is best for you!

Multi-session discounts are built in to the pricing of the program:

                                  Any One Session       Any Two Sessions        Any 3 Sessions___ 4 Sessions

Residential Program:         $995                           $1800                          $2500                  $3200

Day Program:                     $695                           $1200                         $1750                   $2300

  • $75 lab fee:  All science courses are now required to charge an additional $50 lab fee for the additional cost of procuring, and environmentally responsible disposal, of materials used in experiments, dissections and other lab-based classroom activities.  This fee will be charged automatically to all science courses:  Veterinary Science, Forensic Science, and AP Bio / Pre-Med

Residential students enjoy the complete University experience while Day students revel in the convenience of sleeping at home.  All students at our summer academic camps NJ will have a transformative and profoundly important experience at Summer Scholars.
