Zinc’s Favorite Selective Summer Programs

Immersive study in a key area of interest is both a meaningful opportunity for growth and a worthwhile addition to a college application. In the next few posts, we’ll be sharing some of our favorite summer intensives for teens, grouped by subject area. We’ll focus on selective, highly regarded programs that offer exceptional instruction. Many of these programs are online this summer and some are still accepting applicants. Be sure to check program websites for details about application deadlines and entrance requirements.
