  • Updates on Summer 2020

    For more than 40 years, the safety of our students has been the top priority of Summer Discovery and our university partners, and this summer is no different. Out of an abundance of caution, Summer Discovery has made the difficult decision to cancel our on-campus programs for the summer of 2020. Our university partners have also cancelled their own programs this summer. In addition to our safety concerns, we have realized that we will not be able to deliver the complete pre-college experience, as there will be limited on-campus facilities and most off-campus trips won’t be possible. While we won’t see you on campus this summer, we hope to see you in one of our online courses this year, or on campus next year – we’re working to create the very best pre-college experiences for 2021.

    Summer Discovery was founded by Mike and Judy Musiker. Their sons, Bob and Jimmy Musiker, expanded the breadth of programs to include pre-college and middle school enrichment through collaborative partnerships with 14 prestigious universities. We're still a Musiker family-owned organization, featuring the most experienced leadership.
