Culturally Enriching Trips

Visit royal castles and palaces, world-famous museums, art galleries and cathedrals - our trips let you explore England.

Explore Cambridge

Cambridge is home to the world-renowned University of Cambridge, consistently ranked as one of the top universities in the world. Its picturesque buildings, many hundreds of years old, make Cambridge a beautiful city to explore.

The Programme

The Cambridge Scholars' Programme was founded by graduates of the University of Cambridge to provide ambitious high school students aged 14-18 with an unparalleled combination of education and travel - living and studying in Cambridge and exploring Britain's most famous sites. This summer it runs between July 24th to August 13th.

Academically Stimulating

The Cambridge Scholars' Programme allows you to study fascinating new subjects with other talented students. You will be taught by our experienced academics at an appropriate level for your age to help prepare you for college learning.

Optional Trip To Paris

Explore Paris - look down from the Eiffel Tower, explore Versailles, have a day out at Disneyland Paris and much more!

Why Choose Our Cambridge Summer School?

Safety Is Our Number One Aim

We aim to make the scholars feel as safe and secure as possible. We have teachers and medics working for us, and between us the staff have dozens of years experience working at summer schools – so you can rest assured your son or daughter is as safe as when they’re with you.

Looks Great On College Apps

We pride ourselves on the rigorous academic nature of our courses, while also making them as engaging and fun as possible. Studying in Cambridge is a fantastic opportunity, which will help make you stand out in the competitive college applications.

Explore A New Culture

Travelling around Europe is a wonderful way to broaden your horizons, see things from a different perspective, and gain maturity and confidence. Having plenty of Americans around means that you won’t lose touch with American life either – the best of both worlds!

Make Great New Friends

Being nervous at the start is understandable, so we go out of our way to help you make great new friends as quickly as possible – with icebreaking activities at the start of the programme, bonding in your group, and through sharing classes and activities. By the end of the three weeks you’ll be upset at having to leave your new-found friends!

Fun And Independence

We aim to make things as fun as possible – we have plenty of social activities every day, a number of parties, and tutors are encouraged to make their lectures as engaging as possible. It’s also great having an opportunity to be independent from parents, but in a safe environment – good practice for college life.

An Exciting Time To Explore The UK

The world watched in 2011 as Prince William married Kate in Westminster Abbey and then left for the reception in Buckingham Palace (both to be visited on the programme), then in 2012 the UK gained even more of the world’s attention with the 2012 London Olympic Games, and last summer the Prince of Cambridge was born!

The tutors are all very knowledgeable in their subjects and enjoy teaching, which makes the classes even more fun.
