About Blueprint Summer Programs

Our company helps high school students succeed in college from Day 1 through personal, fun and innovative summer programs. Here’s why students come to Blueprint:

  • Get Ready For College: Blueprint’s proprietary College & Career Readiness curriculum, custom-developed academic courses and on-campus living help students more successfully navigate the transition from highschool to college
  • Choose the Right Major: Inspiring courses taught by top-notch instructors help students choose an area they would like (or not like!) to study
  • Decide Where to Go to College: Living on a college campus and taking classes that focus on personal goals, budget and admission requirements help students feel more confident about what college is the ‘right fit’ for them
  • Rock their College Applications: Hands-on activities and workshops dedicated to organizing the college search and application process, writing stellar personal statements and engaging in effective college interviews all set students up for success as they apply for admission!
  • HAVE FUN! Road trips, evening activities and tours of popular attractions make for a fun and memorable summer!

We know, however, that the staff at our programs make a huge impact on how much a student learns from or loves their program experience,  so we look for individuals that are good people with great experience and a passion for mentoring. If this is you, please join us!
