What is the Pre-College Summer Immersion?
Students attending our 1 or 2 week Pre-College Summer Immersion will choose two out of four major concentration courses to explore during the first week along with our signature College and Career Success (CCS) curriculum. The day will be split into 4 class times – one for each concentration course, one for CCS college prep, and one for CCS soft skills.
Our two week students will dive deeper into the CCS curriculum and campus immersion, which will be enhanced with the Introduction to Electives course, where they will get a taste of various subjects that can be studied outside of their major.
In addition, every Blueprint day will include time to explore the campus and each evening will include on-campus activities that help students understand the importance of engagement outside the classroom.
What is Blueprint’s College and Career Success Curriculum (CCS)?
Our CCS course is broken down into 2 sections: Practical knowledge and skill development (or college prep) and soft skill development. We are confident that both of these areas are critical not just for college success but for success in life. Students will explore post-secondary options, how to pay for college, choosing a major/career, writing resumes, interviewing skills, time management, goal setting, communication, problem solving, utilizing resources and more.

The best experience of my daughter’s life. Her words. Thank you!
By the second day we had each other laughing hysterically on our way back from the dining hall! I couldn’t believe how quickly we all became friends.
I would HIGHLY recommend Blueprint to any family looking for a personal, high-value summer college experience.
