How to Apply

We are no longer accepting applications for Summer 2014. 

Applications for Summer in the City, the Liberal Arts Intensive, the Young Women's Leadership Institute, Dance in the City, Summer Science Seminar and Entrepreneurs in Training are all reviewed when completed and students are admitted on a rolling admissions basis. No applications for any programs will be accepted after Friday, June 6th, 2014.  Online applications will go live by February 1.

Admission is selective, and is based on strong high school records, recommendations, and a personal statement. Applications from students whose preparation may vary are welcome, especially if they reveal unusual talents and interests that can be developed further in this program. Applicants must have completed the tenth or eleventh grade of high school by June 2014.

Applications will be accepted beginning in February 2014. Early application is advised as classes may fill before the deadline. All application materials must be received before the application is reviewed. Admissions decisions on complete applications will be made beginning in February 2014 and continue on a rolling basis until registration is closed on Friday, June 6th, 2014. Again, please note that individual classes may fill up prior to June 6th. 

Please note that material sent to our office via US mail or FedEx may take up to 3-5 days to process through the College’s mailroom.  Receipts signed by a member of our mailroom staff do not indicate that the material is actually in our office; confirmation via email to the PCP office is advised.
