Collegiate Scholars

The University of Chicago Collegiate Scholars Program (UCCSP) was founded in 2003 as a three-year program that aims to prepare talented Chicago Public Schools students in grades 10-12 for admission and success at the nation’s top colleges and universities. UCCSP is shaped around a core curriculum of humanities, social science, math, and science courses during the summer months taught by University of Chicago faculty and PhD candidates, and enrichment activities geared toward college readiness, cultural awareness, and civic engagement during the academic year.


Learning at the College Level

The program’s course work and enrichment activities are designed to help students learn to communicate clearly and effectively, improve mathematical reasoning, and develop an effective approach to textual analysis. The program focuses on three areas: advanced academics, top-tier college prep, and creative collaborations.
