For Parents

Dear Parent:

If your child is accepted to the Summer Scholars Institute at Pace University, he/she will be a part of an exclusive group of rising juniors and seniors from around the country that are focused on learning about life in college, the academic foundation of a university and the culture of New York City.

Accepted students will be supervised not only by the program coordinator, but also by a select group of Pace University students who have experience in supervising and peer leadership.  The academic component of the program will inevitably take up most of the students free time during the week and they will be required to submit work to their seminar instructors.  The activities will be monitored by our Summer Scholars staff and students and we will ensure the safety of your child throughout the week.  Curfews will be instituted in the dorms to provide extra security.

We intend to provide your child with an academic foundation but also with an unforgettable experience.  Our activities are designed to be both fun and team building and it has been our experience that students that complete this program stay in touch throughout college and beyond.  We will work hard to provide that same experience for your child.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the Summer Scholars Program at Pace University, please feel free to email me at bevans@pace.edu . We look forward to meeting you and your child.

Sincerely yours, 

Dr. Brian Evans
Director, Summer Scholars Institute
