Precollege Summer Experience


Due to the uncertainties around the Covid pandemic, College for Creative Studies will not offer the Precollege Summer Experience in person this year.  This summer CCS will offer Teen Online Intensives that will allow students to learn new skills, build their portfolios and meet industry professionals.

Winners of the Dunning Automotive Design Competition, Fashion Design Competition and Sneaker Design Competition will receive online courses. 

Summer at CCS: one of the smartest moves you'll make

Summer 2021

Our Precollege program helps you build your portfolio and prepare you for college. So step into something totally new — something you have never tried before, or enhance what you already know about your favorite subject. Choose a studio concentration and tackle a project. Study for three weeks and create a knock-out portfolio. You’ll meet new people, have the option to live on campus, learn from professionals, receive feedback from admissions counselors and participate in a final exhibition of student work.

Through the CCS Precollege Summer Experience you will earn 3.0 college credits, prepare college-level work, develop your interests and talent, and build your portfolio.

The Summer Experience program is perfect for high school students who have completed freshman, sophomore, junior or senior year. Resident and commuter enrollment is available.
