Each year, the Counseling Department works to compile a complete listing of summer programs for our students to attend. These programs offer our students a unique learning experience at the nation's top institutions.
Notre Dame Pre-College Programs
The academic profile of accepted students to the Notre Dame Pre-College Program is extremely powerful. The University is looking for rigorous academics, top test scores, and leadership experience.
Junior Katherine Loftus '15 applied for the “Leadership Seminars” Program (formerly Global Issues Seminar) that is an all-expense paid, eleven day opportunity to study, live, and learn while getting to know the Notre Dame campus. Approximately 100 students are admitted to Leadership Seminars each year and are eligible to receive one college credit upon completion of the program. Katie will be a part of the class that will be focusing on Science, Ethics, and Responsibility. Katie is interested in medicine and this should give her a hearty introduction to some of the pertinent issues facing medical personnel today.

Classes are limited to twenty students. She will study from Notre Dame Theology professors and reflect on what will happen, and what should happen, to the Church in the future.
