2014 College Prep Program
The 2014 College Prep Program at JHU-APL is now accepting applications. This summer will be our 6th program session, and we look forward to recruiting a new class of approximately 20-25 students through a competitive admissions process.
The program is free, except for a $50 registration fee, 100% of which is used to support our students. This fee is automatically waived for students from low-income backgrounds. Our program is volunteer powered, and is offered as a resource for our community.
ALL current high school students (members of 2015, 2016, or 2017 graduating class) are eligible and invited to submit an application to be part of the College Prep Program. We encourage applications from students who are the first in their families to attend a four-year college, students from low-income backgrounds, students who are underrepresented in STEM fields, students interested in STEM careers, and/or students in need of mentoring or advice about the college application process.
We will prepare you for the SAT, discuss different Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers, and learn about the paths that engineers and scientists took to become successful from mentors and guest speakers. We will also visit area colleges! Please fill out the application and return it no later than March 18th (postmark). Classes will be held every Saturday from 8:45am-5pm, beginning May 10th and ending August 16th, 2014 at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, MD.
100% of our alumni are on track to graduate from college. CPP is a fun experience and we hope that you can join us!

All the work put into it will pay off later!
This is the best decision I ever made.
Attending College Prep has been one of the greatest opportunities ever presented to me.
It will propel you into the college application process, and will help you find the best fit for you.
I wasn’t planning to attend college at all until I went to this program.
Biomedical Summer Enrichment Program
The vision of Biomedical Summer Enrichment Program - Science Service, Medicine, and Mentoring (S2M2) is “to cultivate the next generation of top quality, culturally competent academic physicians and scientists.” Students attending the program will learn various aspects of the medical profession and medical specialties, as well as the importance of cultural competence, service activities and professionalism. They will participate in hands-on workshops addressing a range of medical specialties including simulated obstetrical delivery (obstetrics/ gynecology), identification of disease in plasticized human organs (pathology), brain anatomy (neuroscience), risk factors for cardiovascular disease with dissection (cardiology), and suture or surgical knot tying (surgery). When students are not engaged in workshops, they will take field trips.
At the end of the program, the students will hold a community health fair where they will present research based on medical concerns or health disparities relevant to their community. Past topics have included diabetes, hypertension, obesity, sudden infant death syndrome and tuberculosis.
Dates: June 23 - July 3, 2014
