Program Overview

Program Overview

Lipscomb's Summer Scholars is a 10-day experience that emphasizes experiential learning in and outside of the classroom.  It's specially designed to give high-achieving rising seniors the opportunity to earn college credit hours while still in high school. A highly competitive program, selected students will complete real university coursework, explore Nashville, and meet peers from across the country.

Become part of the community that Lipscomb has to offer within the diverse landscape of Nashville, where your learning will extend beyond the classroom. Not only will you visit all of Nashville's most famous attractions—you'll also get to experience Lipscomb's rich connections to Nashville's wealth of professional opportunities. During the evenings, you'll participate in activities on and off campus, ranging from go-karting downtown to group devotionals.

Students accepted into Summer Scholars are guaranteed admission to Lipscomb University.
