PRE-COLLEGIATE PROGRAMS

Heritage

Heritage is a summer honors program for high school students who demonstrate a commitment to Christ, a curiosity to explore the foundations of classical thought, and an eagerness to apply an integrated framework of creativity to life. During this program, students will experience college life on the coast of New England as they explore the riches of a liberal arts education. Throughout the week, full of faculty seminars, cross-cultural cooking classes, excursions into historic Boston and workshops in the creative arts, students will cultivate the disciplines and desires necessary to live a life of flourishing.

WINTER TERM

Academic Policies

Gordon College offers a selection of credit and enrichment courses from various disciplines each Winter Term. Most classes are taught online asynchronously to meet student needs.
