High School Students - Summer Session


High school juniors and seniors can take summer classes at Queens. It's a great opportunity to get ahead on college credits, and a compelling addition to college applications.

"Although college academic work is challenging, the atmosphere at Queens is extremely supportive and enabled me to have a very rewarding experience." —Emily, local high school student
