Admission Requirements

In selecting students for admission to The Summer Academy, Calvin College looks for evidence of Christian commitment and for the capacity and desire to learn. Students who are interested in the Christian perspective and curriculum of Calvin and who show an interest in the program’s aims are eligible for consideration.

Although the prospect of academic success is of primary consideration, the aspirations of the applicant, the recommendation of a high school counselor, teacher, or principal, and a personal recommendation that the student will make contributions to the learning community will also be considered in admission decisions. The Summer Academy admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
