Since she’s been home she has been playing online games with some of the girls from the program and we can hear her giggling with them on the phone. It makes my heart soar to see her forming these connections. You guys are amazing.

Get a Taste of College Title

Summer@CIP provides young adults with autism and learning differences the opportunity to further develop the valuable skills necessary for making a well-prepared transition. Prepare for college life and create a roadmap for the future!

Fun Activities Title

Throughout our two-week sessions, 30+ fun and exciting activities are planned based on your student’s area of interest. Spend some time outdoors this summer hiking, swimming, and exploring local highlights.

Past students have enjoyed ropes courses, theme parks, and professional sports outings. Participants will also have some scheduled downtime to relax and socialize with peers.

Admissions Title

Summer@CIP welcomes participants entering high school grades 10, 11, & 12 in the Fall, as well as recent high school graduates to apply. Generally, each program has up to 30 participants, and all students are assessed to ensure a proper fit.
