Magdalen College is pleased to announce ten full scholarships for its 2019 Collegiate Summer Program.  

Discover the joy of learning this summer at Magdalen College.

High school students and recent graduates are invited to experience, for two weeks in beautiful New Hampshire, the academic community and life of the college. The Collegiate Summer Program introduces students to liberal education through classic texts from philosophy, literature, theology, and political thought. In each of these disciplines, students learn how reflective inquiry can provide answers to the most pressing concerns in life and lead them to encounter the joy and demands of truth.

The program is based on a proven model created forty years ago by Drs. Peter Sampo and Mary Mumbach.

Students laughingThough the academic courses and liturgies form the heart of the Collegiate Summer Program, there is also substantial time for leisure. Summer students climb Mount Kearsarge, visit the Museum of Russian Icons, canoe the Contoocook River, walk Boston’s Freedom Trail, visit Hampton Beach, dive into Shakespeare’s comedies, take in the local sights (a covered bridge and ice cream at “The Velvet Moose”), participate in a dramatic reading of Plato’s Meno, relax together around bonfires, dine together, enjoy films, swing dance, and more.
