Looking for opportunities for talented youngsters under 18?

Most of our programs are exclusively for college students 18 and older, though some programs will accept exceptionally talented high school students.  Any minor wishing to stay in on-campus housing must be accompanied by a chaperone, however.  Please look at individual programs for age requirements.

We also highly recommend that you look into CCM's renowned, accredited Preparatory Department.  They offer a wide range of activities in the summer, including several intensives in multiple disciplines specifically for high school students.
