College Edge

Event will be held online

College Edge is a two-term program offered during Summer–Fall, Spring–Summer, and Fall–Spring that prepares exceptional high school graduates for the world’s highest academic levels, giving them an edge over their college peers. The program is ideal for individuals who:

  • are taking a gap year or bridge year who want to explore subjects of interest, or students with a natural two-term gap in their high school-to-college transition;
  • want to enhance their college application to include a truly immersive college experience at an Ivy League institution; or
  • are preparing to enter the U.S. higher education system.

During this online information session, program administrators will highlight the features and experience of College Edge, and help you choose the option best suited for you and your desired goals. You will have opportunities to ask questions about the program, the application process, life at Columbia, and more.
